EXCITING FUTURE FOR MERCY HOSPITAL  

Mercy Hospital prides itself on the quality of care and services it provides and will continue to grow and evolve in order to continue delivering world class care, keep up with technological advances and meet increased patient demand.

To future proof our services, Mercy Hospital is undergoing a significant transformation over the next three years.  This will see it emerge as New Zealand’s leading private healthcare campus.

The campus will include a new hospital wing, upgrades to the grounds and existing buildings to deliver seamless, high-quality health services to patients at the Mercy Hospital site.

The new hospital wing will contain a suite of operating theatres, an intensive care unit supported by new high-dependency care beds, and a ward of single patient bedrooms.

Additional upgrades of existing buildings and grounds will complement the new wing and deliver a high-quality experience for patients, visitors and staff.

 

Three Year Project

The redevelopment will take place over the next three years, and will include:

  • Deconstructing one of our older wards in the Stella Maris building, followed by site excavation and piling work
  • Widening the Auckland Radiology Oncology (ARO) driveway that leads to Almorah Rd, to provide safe access for Ambulance and emergency vehicles
  • Construction of the new hospital wing, which is expected to begin in early 2022 and be operational in 2024.

As with any building project of this scale, timelines need to be flexible, but we commit to communicating regularly with affected parties to ensure there are no surprises.

 

FINDING YOUR WAY AROUND

Mercy Hospital will continue to function throughout the redevelopment.  We will be working closely with all specialist and treatment services to schedule appointments and procedures in a way that lessens the impact for patients.

We know that the changes we are making will provide a modern, state of the art facility, where innovation and ongoing high quality care is assured, however there will be some disruption in the short term. 

A common issue for patients at any hospital, is finding their way around.  This can be particularly challenging when building works are underway.  Patients should be aware that the entrance to Mercy Hospital, which was previously next to Mercy Radiology on Mountain Road, has moved further down the road, closer to Almorah Road.

The new layout means patients can now drive directly up the ramp of the new car parking building from the new entrance, to the dedicated patient parking.  Patients and visitors can enter reception from here.  Disabled parking is also on this level.

To further assist our patients during this period, a hospital guide is available in reception, to help with directions or walk with patients to their destination if required.  We also have maps available and have installed temporary signs to assist patients and visitors to find their way around the hospital. Our friendly staff are always happy to assist if required.

A comprehensive wayfinding package, including more permanent signage and directions, will be progressively rolled out across the site as the build progresses.
