Government agrees on preferred design for New Dunedin Hospital
The Government has agreed the preferred design for the New Dunedin Hospital.
The design option approved by Cabinet broadly aligns with the preliminary site masterplan – with Outpatients on the Wilsons block and Inpatients on the Cadbury site.
This will deliver a stronger separation of services and much needed day surgery capacity earlier than other options. It also provides linkages to the university and fits in well with the CBD landscape.
Cabinet agreed the detailed business case in principle to maintain momentum on the project and to give people certainty on the design and ongoing progress. $127 million in funding has been released to progress design, demolition, piling, project management and early contractor engagement.
The total budget for the project is expected to exceed $1.4 billion. This will be confirmed once concept design is finished and costings can be finalised. The final details of the business case are expected go to Cabinet for approval by February 2021.
The new Dunedin Hospital, the biggest ever hospital build in New Zealand, will have improved clinical capacity, more integrated services to support new models of care, and better use of digital technology.
