Children's Clinic Has Moved

After 15 years of being across the foyer from the delivery suite, Waikato Hospital's Paediatric Clinic has moved. From today (Monday), all appointments and consultations that have previously been in LB2 of the Campbell Johnstone Building will be at their new premises in LB3 of the Elizabeth Rothwell Building.

The clinic has moved to allow for the establishment of a Women's Assessment Unit (WAU) in a temporary location during the refurbishment of the delivery suite. Service and Campus Redevelopment (SCR) senior project manager Brendan Hague said it is the first permanent move for a clinical department initiated by the demands of the SCR project. "This is one of many upcoming milestones for the project and visitors to the hospital will see other significant changes starting to occur over the next few months.

"It's really gratifying to see these things happening after so much time has been spent planning and organising by different people at the hospital." Mr Hague would also like to thank the Waikato community for their continued support and patience during this time.

"It helps a lot to know that the community is behind us. "The changes can be confusing and noise is disruptive but it will all result in better health care services being provided at Waikato Hospital," he said. Other significant milestones coming up at Waikato Hospital include:opening of the Transit Lounge, parking building and new entrance on 21 January establishment of the temporary WAU in December refurbishment of the delivery suite and birthing rooms begins in January construction of the new Emergency Department to begin in February.

These milestones are part of Waikato District Health Board's $252 million SCR project scheduled for completion in 2012. Ends Contact: Ashleigh PeekCommunications ConsultantWaikato District Health BoardPhone
