Car parking update

The car park outside corporate offices will be closed from Monday morning 11 July, however, a new temporary car park has been built for all to use off Waterwalk Rd (click here to view photo). Please remember, it's not safe to park on the Waterwalk Rd verge as it restricts the view of drivers leaving the Waterwalk Rd car park and could be hazardous, especially with the increased traffic into the construction site.

Latest Media Release: DHB applauds Government's commitment to West Coast

Released 27 May 2016

West Coast District Health Board Chair Peter Ballantyne has applauded the Government's commitment to the health of West Coasters with today's announcement of extra funding to allow the new Grey Base facilities to proceed.

After preferred contractor Fletchers Construction conducted a full tender of sub-trades and detailed design work to refine costs and reduce risks, the Minister of Health has approved an extra $9.7 million to build what is now a $77.8 million new Grey Base Hospital and Integrated Family Health Centre.

Message from West Coast District Health Board Chief Executive David Meates:

Released 3 February 2016

The Hospital Redevelopment Partnership Group has made a decision to delay the start of the Grey Hospital and Integrated Family Health Centre [IFHC] project. This delay is because the Partnership Group require price certainty that the project is within the agreed budget of $68M before work can proceed. Further work is being undertaken in relation to this need for price certainty, with the Ministry of Health directing this process.

The timetable for the facility development has been revised as a result of this delay. While this is unfortunate, the DHB remains committed to continue working collaboratively with our partners in this project to bring to life a new facility for the people of the West Coast.
