A tradition of excellence, a future of innovation
From now until 2019 St George's Hospital will undergo a significant rebuild due to damage sustained in the 2011 earthquakes. It is a unique opportunity to replace what was lost while increasing our ability to provide first class medical care.
The redevelopment will provide our patients, clinicians and staff with world-class facilities that are modern, future-proofed and, most importantly, safe. The new buildings will be built to 180% of the new structural building code and feature base isolation technology.
Below is a summary of planned activity between now and 2019.
Stages 1A and 1B
Stage 1A will see a four-storey atrium constructed on the site of the old heritage building. It will be the hub of the hospital, acting as the main entrance and reception.
Stage 1B involves construction of a single-storey building that will house the Cancer Care Centre's treatment bunkers, relocated from their existing location in the basement which sustained damage in the earthquakes.
The treatment building will be connected to the existing Cancer Care Centre. Opened in 2010, the Centre provides advanced treatment protocols with world-class technology – raising the standard of cancer treatment in New Zealand.
Stages 1A and 1B was completed in September 2016.
Stage Two is a four-storey building on the Leinster Road frontage accommodating radiology services, operating theatres, instrument sterilising services, intensive care and high-dependency units.
Stage Two is expected to be complete in early 2017.
Construction of a four-storey building commences in mid 2017 and will link to Stage Two, housing more state-of-the art operating theatres and education rooms.
Stage Three is expected to be complete in late 2019.
