As is the case in the rest of Australia, Adelaide has modern, well-equipped hospitals with highly-trained staff. There are also a number of quality teaching hospitals in Adelaide, and many of the city's healthcare facilities are connected to universities.

Australia's public healthcare system, called Medicare, provides subsidised or fully funded medical treatment to permanent residents and citizens of both Australia and New Zealand. Those on shorter-term visas will usually not be covered under Medicare and will need to take out private health insurance instead.

Adelaide has several pharmacies, some of which remain open until 12am. The city also has an emergency department in almost every hospital, with excellent medical staff and equipment.
