New Southern Cross CLT hospital finished by Christmas

A new independent hospital for the South Island's Central Lakes region is on track to be finished before the end of this year and be operational by the end of January.

Chairman of the Southern Cross CLT Ltd joint venture Terry Moore says despite challenges caused by Covid-19 lockdowns, excellent progress had been made and the hospital is on track to be handed over from the developer, Queenstown Commercial, before Christmas.

However, various checks need to be completed before the hospital is fully operational and this is expected to be done by the end of January.

Moore says a hospital manager and other key staff have been employed and by the time the hospital opens for business in January, will be employing around 25 staff.

The Southern District Health Board has contracted the hospital to undertake various elective surgical procedures, including a regular weekly operating list for acute orthopaedic procedures.

The hospital includes three operating theatres, 13 inpatient beds with en suites and over time, a schedule of specialist surgery is planned, including orthopaedics, ophthalmology, urology, gynaecology, plastic and general surgery.

The hospital will not be providing accident and emergency services but will be funded by ACC to provide surgery for qualifying injured patients.

Southern Cross CLT Limited is a 50:50 joint venture between the Central Lakes Trust and Southern Cross Healthcare Limited.
