Diamond Harbour and Districts Community Medical Centre Expansion

$6,077 donated
Given by 48 generous donors in over a year

Help expand and modernise Diamond Harbour medical centre to meet the needs of health providers and our growing local community.

Diamond Harbour, Canterbury

In response to an obvious and urgent need, on 23 November 1991 an astonishing feat was achieved in our community. The structure of the Diamond Harbour Medical Centre was constructed in 24 hours with volunteer labour by persons who were all over 60 years of age. The project was funded by an average of $100 donation from 92% of households approached and a $30,000 loan from the Banks Peninsula District Council.

Since then the Medical Centre has enabled the provision of health services that goes “above and beyond” to meet the medical needs of the Diamond Harbour and Districts community.

The Medical Centre is now 30 years old. The building lacks many features that are required of a modern facility that serves a growing community. The Medical Centre building needs to be extended, modernised, and updated.

The main purpose of this project is to improve accessibility, increase space and storage to accommodate the medical and nursing practice, and to address issues of cross-infection raised by the pandemic.
