IHEA to Host IFHE International Congress in 2018

Congratulations to the Institute of Hospital Engineering of Australia (IHEA).

The Australian and New Zealand delegations at the Buenos Aires Congress 2014


The 2018 Congress of the International Federation of Hospital Engineering (IFHE) http://www.ihea.org.au/  has been awarded to Brisbane, Australia. The Aussies presented their case at this year’s congress in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and were up against  proposals from the UK and Italy. In the second round, the IHEA won through.

The NZIHE was represented in Buenos Aires by Tony McKee from Hawkes Bay DHB, who played a part in Australia’s success by being on the ground to support their submission.

This is exciting news, and the NZIHE is planning to discuss options for assisting in making the 2018 congress a success.
