In August 2018, the NZ Government announced it will commit NZ$275 million to upgrade three hospitals in Auckland: Auckland City Hospital, Starship Hospital and Greenlane Clinical Centre. The Auckland District Health Board (DHB) has committed an additional NZ$30 million, bringing the total capital value to NZ$305 million.
In July 2020, the New Zealand Government announced that it would release an additional NZ$262 million for the second stage of core infrastructure works.
The programme of work will include lift upgrades, new fire protection systems, new electrical substations and water storage. The project will also improve energy efficiency and help reduce operating costs.
The distribution of the funds to each hospital has not yet been disclosed.
It is expected that after improving existing critical infrastructure, other hospital upgrades will be planned, as the work is a necessary precursor for any future development on the hospital sites.
