Fiona Wiremu, Chairperson of Te Puna Ora o Mataatua, is pleased to announce the development of a new integrated health care model with the purchase of 86-94 King Street, Whakatane.
“We are pleased to secure property in the heart of Kopeopeo that affirms our commitment to our clients and investment back into our community. It will provide an exciting centralised platform for a one-stop-shop Health Hub” said Ms Wiremu.
The site includes a mix of 12 retail shops and offices with a combined space of over 2,500 square meters. Design of the property is in progress to ensure maximum utilisation of space and services align to our strategies.
Dr Chris Tooley, Chief Executive, said “this new property will allow the delivery of an integrated Health Hub with all our health and wellbeing services as well as inviting partners to join us on the one site. Our clients deserve accessible and coordinated health care and that will remain the cornerstone of our vision going forward.”
“Our expansion across the new property will be incremental. To begin with, we expect our existing staff and services to move across to the site before the end of 2017” said Ms Wiremu.
