About the new hospital

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.  

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 hospital will be built in two stages

1. Outpatient Building (planned to open mid-2025)

  • ambulatory services
  • clinic rooms
  • day procedures
  • non-urgent radiology.

2. Inpatient Building (planned to open mid-2028).

  • 16 operating theatres (expandable to 21 theatres)
  • 421 beds
  • dedicated primary birthing unit
  • 30 ICU or high dependency beds (expandable to 40) with the outpatient building supporting greater delivery of ambulatory care.
