Sana­to­rium sug­gested for Clyde

- Invercargill · South Island · Canterbury

In­ver­cargill: Dr Val­in­tine, In­spec­tor­Gen­eral of Hos­pi­tals, met the South­land and Wal­lace Hos­pi­tal Boards to­day and urged the es­tab­lish­ment of a con­sump­tives’ sana­to­rium for the South Is­land at Clyde, which is con­sid­ered to have the clear­est at­mos­phere in the world.

It was hoped that the South Is­land boards, in­clud­ing North Can­ter­bury and pos­si­bly Ash­bur­ton, would con­trib­ute to­wards the cost of the in­sti­tu­tion. It was es­ti­mated that a sana­to­rium con­tain­ing 120 to150 beds would cost £50,000, of which the Gov­ern­ment would find £25,000 and the boards the bal­ance. The Gov­ern­ment is prac­ti­cally cer­tain to un­der­take the main­te­nance of the in­sti­tu­tion.
