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.
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 have developed a set of maps and will also be installing temporary signs to assist patients and visitors to find their way around the hospital. Our friendly staff are always happy to assist if required.
