Our History

We are proud of our history of delivering first class healthcare to the residents of the Adelaide Hills and the wider community, for over 90 years.

Stirling Hospital is unique in that it was funded by the residents of the Adelaide Hills through a fund-raising campaign in 1926. At this time, patients requiring specialist medical care had to endure a whole day return trip to the city.

Several prominent citizens at the time decided that the community deserved a better, more comprehensive healthcare service and as such a fundraising committee was formed. The generosity of the local community and some innovative fundraising activities, resulted in the purchase of an old family home, on the current site. These activities included holding a fair and asking their friends with motor cars to being them along.

The hospital officially opened in July 1927 and since that time has been proud of its care and reputation in the community.
