Good progress in being made on the close to $1 billion worth of hospital redevelopment projects underway in Canterbury.

“The base isolators have been delivered to the site of the Acute Services Building and we’re awaiting a large shipment of steel framing arriving at Lyttelton Port in early April,” Hospital Partnership Redevelopment Group spokesperson Murray Cleverley says.

“The Acute Services Building is designed to withstand and continue to operate in the event of future earthquakes, ensuring it will be a safe environment for staff, patients and visitors.

“The Acute Services Building is the largest Government project in the Canterbury rebuild. When combined with the new facilities at Burwood, due to open from June, and the new Outpatients facility, due to open in 2018, it represents the largest hospital redevelopment project in New Zealand’s history.”

More information on the project is available on the Ministry of Health and Canterbury DHB websites.
