About the trust
In 1994 Waikato Hospital announced it was closing Te Aroha Hospital and Lawrence House Rest Home.
A public meeting was held and it was decided the Community would take over the facilities and from this a Trust was formed to run the business.
The name of the Trust was Te Aroha and District Health Services Charitable Trust. The official opening of the new venture took place in December 1996.
The Trust employ a Clinical Facility Manager to provide leadership and management of the Facility following the strategic direction of the Trust Board and the standards required of such a facility.
The Trust has enjoyed the financial and voluntary support from the Community who have always supported the Board of Trustees and the staff.
