Launceston Private Hospital – announcement

3 February 2024

Calvary Health Care has announced together with the Tasmanian Government that our proposed Launceston private hospital development can not proceed.

“Our team has invested an enormous amount of time and energy to try and deliver the co-located private hospital, however, the associated challenging budget escalations are insurmountable for Calvary at this time,” National CEO Martin Bowles said.

“Calvary did not make this decision lightly and acknowledges the outcome is disappointing for our staff, Visiting Medical Officers, suppliers and the broader community.”

“Aligned with our mission, Calvary is committed to a commercially viable solution which meets our strategic goals, as well as contributes to serving the needs of the northern Tasmanian community.”
