Grey Base Hospital - Blessing Ceremony


Representatives from the two runanga – Te Runanga o Ngāti Waewae and Te Runanga o Makaawhio – were joined by local Anglican and Catholic ministers to formally bless the new facility. The ceremony denotes an important step in welcoming the DHB staff into the facility to start their work.

The West Coast DHB will now start the 10-week operational readiness phase to prepare the new facility for migration. This will include a thorough facility clean followed by equipment installation, stocking of consumables and clinical supplies as well as completing information technology infrastructure works.

“The operational readiness and migration phases are dependent on our ongoing response to the current COVID-19 pandemic as the existing Grey Base Hospital must continue to be ready to respond to any local developments that may arise while we continue to operate under the current alert level system.”

“We are looking forward to preparing Te Nikau Hospital and Health Centre for our West Coast community and will keep everyone informed about our progress with regular updates,” West Coast DHB’s Board Chair Rick Barker says.
