Incorporating technology and processes to improve efficiency, enhance patient and staff experience, increase pandemic readiness and benefit generations of people.

This New Dunedin hospital replaces the majority of the existing city campus provided badly needed facilities to service the wider Southern region. For continuity, the existing hospital will be kept operational and will be built in stages to enable the Outpatient building to be operational as early as possible. 

The new hospital will include 421 beds, 16 theatres (expandable to 21 theatres) and 30 ICU or high dependency beds (expandable to 40) with the outpatient building supporting greater delivery of ambulatory care. 

The hospital will be built in two stages: 

  • An Outpatient Building (planned to open in January 2025). This will include ambulatory services, clinic rooms, day procedures and non-urgent radiology. 

  • An Inpatient Building (planned to open in April 2028). This includes an emergency department, operating theatres and other services including a dedicated primary birthing unit. 

While the new hospital will be similar in size to the current hospital, it's design and use of latest technology will mean greater efficiency, including patient flow around the hospital and better access to diagnostics and treatment spaces, reducing unnecessary delays.   

To date we have supported the project from concept design and business case development, through to the current preliminary and developed design stages. 

Sustainability and energy efficiency are front of mind. The project will deliver a sustainable, wellness-focussed built environment and is targeting a 5-Star Green Star rating, recognised as ‘New Zealand Excellence’.
