Press Release October 2019

The future of QE Health is looking brighter after Pukeroa Lakefront Holdings Limited and QE Health Limited reached agreement yesterday on key terms to enable QE Health to build a new facility on Pukeroa’s lakefront site.


The fact that we have been able to achieve this agreement is significant according to QE Hospital Community Trust Chairman Stewart Edward. “We had been due to vacate our current premises by the end of October when our lease expired. Due to constructive negotiations and a large amount of goodwill.

“This agreement allows us to stay on the current site for now and keep operating. It also gives us more time to seek the by the landowner, Pukeroa, QE Health now have the ability to plan for the future with certainty.”

funding required to enable us to build brand new premises. We have filed a Provincial Growth Fund application and are hopeful that will be approved so we can start construction” says Mr Edward.


Pukeroa Deputy Chairman David Tapsell says that a new QE Health facility will fit well within the overall Pukeroa lakefront site and complement Pukeroa’s proposed Wai Ariki Hot Springs and Spa development. “Although we will be offering different products these will be complementary allowing the overall site to be promoted as a health and wellness precinct offering services ranging from luxury Spa through to clinical rehabilitation. Given the geothermal features of the site and the Te Arawa cultural overlay that will be applied this will be a unique offering that will be great for the city “says Mr Tapsell.


“QEH is actively working on its funding requirements to build their new facility and they expect this to be confirmed early next year. The timing also works for Pukeroa and should allow construction to commence on site with both facilities at about the same time next year. With QEHs approximate 70 staff and the Wai Ariki Hot Springs & Spa proposing about the same for its facility, this is a significant boost for employment and the local and regional economy”.
