About Summit Health

Our vision is to be the leader in primary health solutions.

Our mission is to support general practice to enhance the health of the community.

Summit Health provides practice & service support primarily to General Practice in the Adelaide Hills in order to improve health outcomes in the region.

Working closely with the hospitals & community health centres, Summit Health focuses on providing a way forward to benefit the community at large.

Summit Health services include:

  • a focal point for GP issues
  • a focus for GPs seeking information
  • multidisciplinary Continuing Professional Development
  • primary care skills training
  • information and support linking GPs and their patients with the local community and allied health services
  • health promotion resources and liaison

Summit Health is located within the Summit Health Centre on Wellington Road, Mount Barker. Our region extends from Stirling in the West, Gumeracha in the North, Milang in the South and Callington to the East. The western part (Stirling, Aldgate, Crafers, Uraidla, Norton Summit) is mainly “dormitory suburbs” for Adelaide, with residents commuting to Adelaide on a daily basis. The central parts (Balhannah, Hahndorf, Woodside) are almost entirely rural, with a mixture of both in the eastern areas (Mt Barker, Littlehampton, Nairne).
