ViTA is a state of the art centre that supports older people to rehabilitate, regain health and live good lives.
It's a new approach to not just living longer, but living better.
A progressive partnership between ACH Group, SA Health and Flinders University, ViTA combines best practice approaches to health and aged care with a focus on teaching and research – optimising health and wellbeing outcomes for people. Comprising long term, short term, transitional care and rehabilitation places, ViTA demonstrates real innovation in a sector that is undergoing radical change.
Located in Daw Park, ViTA offers South Australians unparalleled access to the latest technology and clinical and social practices to enhance recovery and rehabilitation from illness or injury.
Services are individually tailored to suit the circumstances and future needs of each person. A reablement approach ensures that people who access ViTA have the physical capability and confidence to carry out daily living activities. This gives them the best chance of remaining in their own homes.
Offering light-filled rooms with garden views, smart TVs, private ensuites and the latest in interior design trends, a stay in ViTA’s hotel-like environment promotes optimism and speeds up recovery.
A concierge service offers a little extra customer service and can help with such things as travel and dining options - because a stay in ViTA supports people to keep doing the things they love doing.

Stimulating environment for students and researchers
ViTA will develop into a progressive health, teaching and research centred on new approaches to rehabilitation and restoration, by:
- Training and developing a future aged care workforce including general practitioners, nurses, allied health workers, support workers, hotel services and clerical staff.
- Taking an Interprofessional Learning Approach that involves students from various disciplines (eg nurses and physiotherapists) working alongside each other to improve collaboration and quality of care.
- Making the most of the partnership involving SA Health, Flinders University and the Repatriation General Hospital to take an holistic approach to positive health outcomes.
