Hospital model on display

Hospital model on display

Anyone visiting the Waitakere City Council’s Civic Centre over the next few weeks will have an ideal chance to check out what the new Waitakere Hospital will look like when it is finished in November next year.

The council is playing host to a model display of the new hospital that shows the full detail of the hospital extension as well as other buildings on the site.

Supporting poster information outlines the new services that will be delivered next year; the hospital’s eco-friendly building initiatives; a Wayfinding Project designed to make it easier for patients and visitors to find their way around; and details on how the public can support the new hospital through the West Auckland Health Services Foundation.

Hospital development leader Kay Hogan says the intention is to display the model in as many community settings as possible in the lead up to the hospital becoming fully open in 15 months time.

“The Waitakere Hospital development is one of the most significant health projects that West Auckland has ever seen. It’s important that the community has the opportunity to view what the new hospital will look like and what services we will deliver.”

Ms Hogan says stage one of the hospital development, a major extension, is due to be completed in September. Stage two, the refurbishment of the existing hospital block and opening of new services, is due to be finished in November next year.

New services on the way next year include an emergency care centre, medical and surgical wards, child health unit, coronary care unit and a special care baby unit.

The council’s Civic Centre is located on Waipareira Ave, Henderson.
