St Anne’s Hospital
Eviction from Avondale Premises
At the end 2014 the owners of the King George property, the Little Company of Mary (LCM) of the Roman Catholic Church, did not renew the lease. The owners of St Anne's hospital however resisted being evicted from the property. On December 23, 2015 a High Court judge ruled that the elite private hospital had no right to continue operating from LCM’s building following termination of its lease agreement in 2014. St Anne’s Hospital filed an Urgent Chamber application which temporarily stayed the execution of the court order, but in February 2016, a High Court judge dismissed the health institution’s urgent chamber application seeking to stay the execution order.
