    Description
Flinders Medical Centre (FMC) is a 580 bed public teaching hospital in Adelaide, South Australia. FMC is part of the Southern Adelaide Health Service (Southern Health) which includes Noarlunga Health Services, Drug and Alcohol Services South Australia, Southern Mental Health and Population & Primary Health Care.

FMC is situated in the Adelaide foothills on an 11.5 hectare campus approximately 12 kilometres from the city centre. It is only a few kilometres from our beautiful south coast beaches and close to famous wineries in the southern Adelaide region.

Since opening in 1976, FMC has earned an international reputation as one of Australia’s finest public teaching hospitals and as a centre for research excellence.

The hospital is co-located with the Flinders University School of Medicine and the 130 bed Flinders Private Hospital. FMC has close links with other health providers in southern Adelaide, including Repatriation General Hospital and the Southern Division of General Practice.

FMC is unique in South Australia (SA) in providing an extensive range of services for patients of all ages. It is one of two major trauma centres in SA. An around-the-clock emergency retrieval service brings patients to FMC by road or helicopter.

FMC is also the base for the South Australian Eye Bank and the South Australian and Northern Territory Liver Transplant Unit.

More than 3,500 skilled FMC staff provide services to people across Australia, from Darwin in the Northern Territory to Mount Gambier in South Australia's south east.

Staff at FMC are supported by more than 550 volunteers who make up the largest volunteer service in a public hospital in SA.
