About Pika Wiya Health Service
Established as Pika Wiya Health Services Inc. in the early 1970s to provide a medical service to the Aboriginal population in Port Augusta and Davenport, the organisation was incorporated in 1984 under the SA Health Commission (now Country Health SA Local Health Network Inc.). On 1 July 2011, the service transitioned to Aboriginal community control under the CATSI Act.
Now known as Pika Wiya Health Service Aboriginal Corporation, the organisation operates from premises in Port Augusta and also has clinics at Davenport, Copley and Nepabunna communities as well as provides services to the communities of Quorn, Hawker, Marree, Lyndhurst and Beltana.
Our not-for-profit organisation provides General Practitioner (GP), Oral, Primary and Allied Health Services, with a range of Home and Community Care, Family Wellbeing, Aged Care Services, Early Numeracy and Literacy Support services. We are responsive to the needs and aspirations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, families and communities within our service region and support them to exercise control of their Health and Wellbeing.
