Wakefield Hospital Redevelopment

Acurity Health Group has lodged a Resource Consent application with Wellington City Council for the proposed $100 million re-development of Wakefield Hospital.

The proposed new private hospital will offer patients from central New Zealand access to some of the most advanced medical services and treatment in the country, showcasing the latest medical technologies.

This will include up to 64 single beds, eight large operating theatres including cardiac and endoscopy, consulting suites and a full suite of specialist services on the existing site in the city’s Newtown area.

This is an opportunity to provide a purpose-built state-of-the-art facility, specially designed for patient comfort with a hotel feel and first-class services, ease of access with undercover drop off, an abundance of natural light and flexibility to expand in the future.

It will further build on Wakefield’s long-standing tradition of seamlessly providing care with consultant specialist and support servicesall delivered on the same site.

The existing Wakefield Hospital will make way for a new complex, which will significantly exceed the latest seismic codes.  

If the Resource Consent application is approved, the hospital will be completed in three stages. Stage one will commence with the construction of parking, medical imaging, and consulting suites.

Stage two will see work on perioperative services and inpatient rooms and stage three, rehabilitation and support facilities.

Services will continue to be maintained during construction.

Subject to the approval of the Resource Consent Application, it is anticipated that construction will commence in the third quarter of 2018 with the building fully operational in the third quarter of 2021.
