The new facilities, in particular patient bedrooms, feature innovative planning, outstanding views and natural light, all of which contribute to the healing process and wellbeing of patients. 

The new 62,000m² Acute Services ten-storey building will include operating theatres, intensive care, radiology, acute medical assessment and an expanded emergency department, and support areas.

A rooftop helipad will significantly reduce transit times for acute patients and the new theatres will allow the DHB to perform an additional 6,000 surgeries a year. Inpatient ward blocks over six floors will provide approximately 400 beds. Space will be left to extend future ward capacity by a further 140 beds.

Bordering the expansive landscape of Hagley Park, the building occupies land immediately adjacent to the existing hospital buildings. The new facilities, in particular patient bedrooms, feature innovative planning, outstanding views and natural light, all of which contribute to the healing process and wellbeing of patients. 

The design process for the building has been clinically led and has involved hundreds of clinical staff working alongside architects, health planners and the public. Warren and Mahoney, in conjunction with Chow:Hill and Thinc Health, as Katoa Health Design provided architectural services for this significant new building.
