Update, December 2017
The original proposal to sell part of the site of the former Akaroa Hospital (now demolished) was abandoned once the associated proposal from a third party (Ngai Tahu) to develop an Integrated Family Health Centre was withdrawn. The site will now be retained in Canterbury DHB ownership for the development of a new facility.
A temporary GP facility currently operates on the site from a temporary skyline garage and portacom set up.
Following the demolition of the old Akaroa Hospital due to earthquake damage, a new 780m2 facility has been co-designed with the Akaroa community and health providers to meet the current and future needs of the community. It will be jointly funded by Canterbury DHB and the local community through the Akaroa Community Trust.
Rather than being a 'like for like' rebuild of the old hospital, this new facility will incorporate a range of services such as a general practice surgery, physiotherapy, urgent care beds, and an eight bed aged care facility. It will be built on the old hospital site as a single storey NZS 3604 timber construction, with some steel works to large span areas and concrete slab and foundations.
