    A big chunk of the Central South Island will soon have access to a higher level of healthcare

    A big chunk of the Central South Island will soon have access to a higher level of healthcare


    The South Canterbury DHB's approved a 30-million-dollar upgrade for Timaru Hospital.

    It will start with a complete overhaul of the Clinical Services Building.

    Next will be a refurbishment of the children's and maternity wards - then building a new treatment and rehabilitation unit.

    Mayor Nigel Bowen says it will mean a lot, to a lot of people.

    He says the hospital looks after 60-thousand people - and treats patients from as far away as the Mackenzie Region.
