It was previously known as Calvary Hospital Adelaide, originally North Adelaide Hospital, and is one of Adelaide's oldest hospitals, having been established before 1900, when the Little Company of Mary Sisters took control of the hospital.[1]

Calvary North Adelaide Hospital is a fully operational hospital which, in 2016, had 153 beds.[2]

Much of the hospital is heritage listed, maintaining its turn of the century exterior and interior.

It features a large maternity wing, 8 operating theatres, day surgery suite, 1 medical ward including a day infusion centre, two surgical wards all supported by a Level II Intensive Care Unit.

The hospital also houses the extensive Mary Potter Hospice, a 15-bed hospice caring for palliative care patients, and a comprehensive Oncology Centre, a radiology department, and also multiple specialist suites within or adjacent to the hospital.

The grounds at the rear of the hospital also contains a turn of the century chapel.

It is located on Strangways Terrace in North Adelaide, only two kilometres from the Adelaide city centre.

It is owned by parent corporation Little Company of Mary Health Care (or "Calvary Health Care") which, in 2006, acquired Calvary Wakefield Hospital, Calvary Central Districts Hospital and Calvary Rehabilitation Hospital. Due to these acquisitions, the original hospital is now known as Calvary North Adelaide instead of Calvary Hospital Adelaide. [2]
