Annual Report shows focus on quality

Waikato District Health Board’s annual report for the 2013-2014 financial year (1 July 2013 to 30 June 2014) was tabled in Parliament a week before Christmas.

In it board chair Bob Simcock reports on a year of great change with the completion of Waikato DHB’s massive $500 million building programme, continual improvement in health targets’ performance, recruitment of a new chief executive and changes in board membership.

“Throughout the year, we strengthened our focus on quality as a priority so we can achieve the best outcomes for our patients and clients.”

Waikato DHB finished the year with a $3.8 million surplus, $2 million favourable to budget.

“This reflects well on everyone involved particularly our dedicated staff who in the face of a number of challenges helped us continue to build healthy communities,” said Mr Simcock.Annual report facts18
