At this meeting Wellington Hospitals Foundation chair Bill Day is going to tell us the story of the proposed new Wellington Regional Children's Hospital

November 7, 2018 marked the start of the construction of our new Wellington Regional Children’s Hospital. The 7000-square metre, three-storey new children’s hospital is expected to open by early 2021. The new, purpose-built facility will allow us to provide high-quality care to our young patients – bringing inpatient services and outpatient clinics under one roof, and allowing for the integration of services.

The first ever children’s hospital in New Zealand was built by the community, and opened in Wellington in 1912. Now a new children’s hospital is again being built and instigated by the support of Mr Mark Dunajtschik and the community.
