We are pleased to advise that Southern Cross Rehabilitation has bolstered its presence in preventative and rehabilitative care by acquiring a stake in Active+. Southern Cross Rehabilitation is a subsidiary business of Southern Cross Hospitals. Southern Cross Rehabilitation has acquired just over 50 per cent of Active Physio Ltd (the franchise company) and 25 per cent of Active Limited (the supply company).
The business’ investment in Active+ is part of its strategy to broaden its offering into early health and wellbeing intervention and supported recovery.
Southern Cross Hospitals CEO Terry Moore says the diverse offering of Active+ will complement Southern Cross Hospitals’ core surgical business and improve the patient experience.
“Funders of healthcare, such as health insurers and ACC, are looking for hospitals and rehabilitation services to work more closely together for the benefit of patients, so this is another step in our journey to offer a more integrated service,” he says. “Active+ is a natural partner for us. It has a great reputation for high quality multidisciplinary care. We share similar values and a commitment to providing quality accessible health care services.”
Managing Directors Gill Webb says the joint venture will enable continued expansion and provision of more quality care for Kiwis.
“When I started Active+ 30 years ago, I had a vision of helping Kiwis get back on their feet by building a leading rehabilitation, prevention and wellness business,” she says. “This investment from Southern Cross Rehabilitation will help Active+ reach its next goal of becoming the country’s leading brand of integrated allied health clinicians.”
We welcome Southern Cross to the Active+ family, and look forward to a long and fruitful relationship!
