The $121.9 million facility includes 56 in-patient beds, three operating theatres, an integrated family health centre, a 24/7 emergency department, critical care unit, acute and planned medical and surgical services, maternity services, radiology, laboratory services, paediatrics and outpatient care.

CCM and Jacobs assisted the Ministry of Health and West Coast District Health Board to formulate a solution that is sustainable, affordable and supports an evolving model-of-care incorporating creative health service delivery.

Internally, the functional planning required innovative sharing of space, overlap zones and data-based briefing to provide a sustainable and efficient long-term solution for the Coast.
