About Celsus

Through our partnerships, Celsus is facilitating the transformation of the health environment by delivering future-focused infrastructure to South Australians, because they deserve the best in healthcare, education and research.

By realising South Australia’s vision for the facility, we are collectively securing our future health.

Celsus (formerly SA Health Partnership) is the project consortium responsible for the design, finance, construction, commissioning and facility management of the Royal Adelaide Hospital.

We believe that each individual deserves the absolute best in healthcare, education and research. As a Public Private Partnership, we are collectively delivering a future-focused infrastructure, to facilitate a new and technologically-advanced culture of care.

For the next 29 years, we will provide facility management with a patient-centric philosophy. One that serves the growing needs of South Australians while setting the global benchmark for future hospitals.

It is a very great responsibility, and one which we do not take lightly. We are addressing it with integrity, professionalism and collaboration to secure the best possible outcome for our State.
