As a steady stream of patients walked through the doors of the new Hastings Health Centre, invited guests and those behind the multi-million dollar vision gathered in celebration.
It marked the end of a nearly three-year project and the beginning of a new journey for the centre, which is now one of the most modern integrated primary-health care facilities in New Zealand.
“This is one step but a major one in a journey that started in the early 2000s when a small group of health professionals decided to drive change in the health sector and take their destiny into their own hands and finance the Hastings Health Centre as we know it today,” chairman Peter Ellis said.
