PLANS FOR PRIVATE QUEENSTOWN HOSPITAL

 Print Page

August, 2019

The project consultant for a proposed independent hospital in

Queenstown says the joint venture partners are making good progress

on design and specs.

The original partner is large Kiwi private hospital operator, Southern

Cross Hospitals. It was joined last November by regional charitable

trust, Central Lakes Trust.

Consultant Andrew Blair says the partners are still working through the

due diligence process.

The planning has taken longer than we had hoped, but both parties

take very seriously their responsibility to thoroughly research all aspects

of the project before committing to what represents a significant

investment for the region.

Blair says the parties have also maintained constructive dialogue with

the Southern District Health Board.

Hes said in the past that the hospital, from day one, would be open to

health board-funded public patients.

Local mayor Jim Boult told November he was over the moon hed got

SDHB agreement for this.

Such a hospital would cater for not only people who can just pay the

cost, or have medical insurance, but just for ordinary folk in the public

health system to go there and have all of those short treatments done

that we currently need to go to Dunedin for.
