About the New Dunedin Hospital
While the New Dunedin Hospital will be similar in size to the current hospital, its 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.
Dunedin’s economy will receive a massive boost as a result of this new hospital project, contributing an estimated $429 million GDP. The build will employ thousands of construction workers over the lifetime of the project.
Design for the new hospital will incorporate technology and processes to improve efficiency, enhance patient and staff experience, increase pandemic readiness and benefit generations of people across the Southern region.
The New Dunedin Hospital will be built in two stages
The first stage focuses on the Outpatient Building, which includes:
- Outpatient services
- clinic rooms
- Day Procedures Unit
- planned radiology.
In the second stage, the construction of the Inpatient Building includes:
- expanded Emergency Department
- Operating Theatre Suite and short stay surgical unit
- dedicated Primary Birthing Unit
- ICU and High Dependency beds
- Inpatient wards
