West Coast hospital facilities

Information about Grey Base Hospital, the Integrated Family Health Centre and the West Coast Hospital Redevelopment Partnership Group.

The Government is delivering a $77.8 million new hospital and integrated family health centre in Greymouth for the West Coast community.

The 8,500 square metre facility, adjacent to the current Grey Base Hospital, includes 56 in-patient beds, three operating theatres, and an integrated family health centre to support the delivery of primary healthcare services. It will also house and support the delivery of other clinical services including a 24/7 emergency department, critical care unit, acute and planned medical and surgical services, maternity services, and outpatient care.

Construction began at the end of May 2016 and the new facility is expected to open in 2018.
