Taking care of health in Akaroa and the Bays.
Akaroa Hospital stood proudly on its Aylmers Valley hill site from 1926 until the earthquakes of 2011 made it unusable. The Akaroa Community Health Trust is now working with Canterbury DHB to build an Integrated Family Health Centre in the place of the hospital. Building has commenced and a new charitable operating company - Akaroa Health Limited - will be providing full services to the community from a new purpose built facility on the old hospital site in mid-2019.
On this website, you will find information about the services, the building, the history, and on-going fundraising efforts within the community. It is operated by the Akaroa Community Health Trustees who welcome input from the community through these addresses: email@example.com or Post Box 161, Akaroa 7542.
