Charity Hospital To Be More Multi-Purpose For The Future

Concept plans for the Southland Charity Hospital have been released, on the same day as the late Blair Vining’s 40th birthday.

Managed by Boyd Wilson and the team at Bonisch Consultants, the concept plans for the Southland Charity Hospital were an incredible way for the family to honour Blair on his birthday, his wife Melissa said.

Blair lost his battle with bowel cancer in October 2019.

“Marking what would have been Blair’s milestone birthday this year is fraught with sadness.

“It’s incredibly tough to have this big, special day that should have been full of celebration, and should have been an opportunity for our family to look towards the next stage of our lives together, now looming without Blair here.

“It’s particularly difficult because of the global crisis we are in with COVID-19, which means we are unable to share this day with our support network of friends and family. Our daughters, Della-May and Lilly, and I are full of gratitude for everybody who has worked so hard to get the Southland Charity Hospital to the point it is now at today.

“Seeing Blair’s dream start to become a reality means so much to us this year. These concept drawings are a reminder of everything Blair fought for, and they make this project feel much more real.”

Boyd said the concept for the hospital was for a multi-purpose facility designed with the future in mind – the operating theatre would be the same size as a full-scale operating theatre that could be used for more intensive surgeries.

Provision has also been made for a dental suite.

Next steps would include the preparation of the resource consent application, as well as developing detailed design plans, he said.
