ABANO HEALTHCARE ADVISES RECEIPT OF REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL FOR WELLINGTON AND HUTT VALLEY COMMUNITY PATHOLOGY SERVICES

Abano Healthcare advises that the expected RFP (Request For Proposal) for the community pathology work for the Wellington and Hutt Valley regions has been received. The RFP has been jointly issued by the Capital Coast District Health Board and the Hutt Valley District Health Board.

Along with Sonic Healthcare, Abano has also formally lodged an application with the Commerce Commission to merge their two community laboratories in the region and a decision is expected in the new year.

In addition, and as expected, Abano Healthcare also received an RFP from the Marlborough Nelson District Health Board for the community and public laboratory services in that region.

Both RFPs are due to be submitted to the issuing District Health Boards in mid-February 2006.
