One-Time Funding for the Transformation of Small and Rural Hospitals

This installment of Transformation Fund for small and rural hospitals is to build upon the previous goals and objectives of the funding and existing projects. The use of the funding must also support the Rural Health Implementation Plan and the Rural Wellington Health Links, which outlines the mission "enabling residents of Rural Wellington through efficient, responsive, high-quality services, to live optimal health". While only qualified hospitals may receive the funds, achievement of the transformation goals requires strong inter-facility and cross-sectoral relationships.
