Sanatorium suggested for Clyde
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.
