South Link Health Services was formed in 2010 in response to requests from some of our General Practitioner colleagues wanting to exit practice ownership over the coming years. Since its inception, the South Link Health Group has acquired 43 practices and consolidates these into a network of 23 practices who have formed partnerships with South Link Health Services.

SLHS was established to provide health sector clients with all aspects of Practice Management under a purchase of equity agreement. We work with the owners of the practices to plan their future options with General Practice.

We are a multi-disciplinary development team with:

  • experience in the design of clinical facilities
  • specialist architectural and structural design knowledge
  • project and construction management expertise.

Recent developments include a range of new and re-developed facilities throughout New Zealand catering from 3,000 to 15,000 patients.

Building new facilities or upgrading existing ones allows us to merge solo practices, providing unity, security and collegial support, or, update dated facilities which in turn give us the ability to enhance and grow our patient care services and at the same time provide our colleagues with new technology, education and up skilling opportunities.

South Link Health Services is a not for profit organisation which means our profits go back into the community by way of continuing to grow our health resources and services offered back where it is most needed.

South Link Health Services Goal
