South Coast District Hospital will receive equipment for ear, nose and throat (ENT) procedures thanks to a donation from The Hospital Research Foundation (THRF).

The charity has made a $300,000 state-wide commitment to regional health sites, and $32,000 of that will be spent within the Barossa Hills Fleurieu Local Health Network.

The ENT equipment being supplied to the South Coast District Hospital is worth $15,000 and was requested by the local health network.

Barossa Hills Fleurieu Local Health Network acting CEO Kylie Williams welcomed the funding.

"We are extremely grateful to receive this generous contribution from The Hospital Research Foundation and would like to thank them for their ongoing support," she said.

"This equipment will allow us to continue providing high quality care to our local community for both now and into the future."

THRF chief executive officer Paul Flynn said the charity wanted to keep supporting communities and public hospitals across South Australia.

"With about 25 per cent of South Australians living outside of Adelaide, it is incumbent of us to do all we can to help improve care and treatments for these regional communities," Mr Flynn said.

"This equipment meets an immediate need within the Fleurieu and Hills region and helps patients access the latest healthcare at their local hospital.

"It also arms our frontline healthcare workers with the latest technology to make their jobs easier."

He said the donations were made possible thanks to donors and ticket buyers in the Hospital Research Home Lottery.
