Oamaru Hospital

Waitaki District Health Services Trust

The Waitaki District Health Services Trust was established as an independent trust fund from which grants can be made to support Oamaru Hospital and other health services and healthcare needs of Waitaki District. The trust receives & invests donations & bequests for these purposes from individual donors and community organisations. The trust is particularly important to being able to assist health care in areas where government funding is either not available or limited. The trust relies on the generosity of the community to maintain and grow the trust fund and all forms of donations will be gratefully accepted and carefully administered as part of a capital endowment fund, the income from which is utilised for grants.

Recent examples of assistance the Trust has given are the hospital smoking cessation programme, available at no cost to persons needing help to stop smoking, the provision of a free local Echocardiography Service, and the establishment of a CT Scanner service to support X-ray and Radiology services that the hospital provides to the community.
