Demand for local heath care services is deemed to increase in the long term, primarily in the major metropolitan areas since the large accident and emergency hospitals are redefining emergency treatment and are referring more patients to local health care providers. Demand for health care premises is also generally rising in line with a growing population, new treatment options and number of elderly.
