This project is a 6,600m2 new building and a 3,000m2 refurbishment of the existing Hutt Hospital. It includes a new theatre suite with 8 operating theatres, day surgery, pre and post-operative support facility including administration and staff facilities and a new central sterile supplies department. A new emergency department is included in the building with satellite imaging, acute and sub-acute zones, resusitation and ambulatory care. It has an APU (admissions and planning unit) to streamline patient assessment and reduce unnecessary admissions demand on the wards. This is a new department for Hutt Hospital.
