Expansion Plans for Royston Hospital

A house in Hastings is being uplifted and relocated, right down to the white picket fence, to make way for the expansion of Royston Hospital.

Royston Hospital bought the property, which neighbours Royston Hospital, about a year ago, hospital general manager Denise Primrose said.

“The idea was born then that we would like to create this as a opportunity to give to charity.”

They decided to sell, rather than demolish the house, and the $25,000 raised will be split between two charities, Cranford Hospice and Hawke’s Bay Brain Injury Association.
