The new Royal Adelaide Hospital is visible from our hotel window. It has been interesting because the hospital opened while we were here and been a big story on the local news. We landed Sunday and they started transferring patients from the old hospital to new on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. The area has been busy with related action. I had trouble sleeping from the helicopter activity on the helipad one night. The old facility will reportedly be demolished and the land granted to the adjacent Botanical Gardens.

Next to the hospital and directly across from our hotel are the uniquely shaped South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute and University of Adelaide Health and Medical Science buildings, both also recently built.
