The New Zealand Government will fund a new Spinal and Adult Rehabilitation Unit in Auckland, to be located in the Manukau Health Park. The key features of the Unit have not yet been unveiled, but it is expected the facility will serve people with spinal injuries, burns victims and amputees. 

The new facility is set to replace the Auckland Spinal Rehabilitation Unit at Ōtara, a 20-bed facility built in 1977, and the General Rehabilitation Service at Middlemore Hospital, and forms part of the broader redevelopment of Auckland’s Manukau Health Park. The existing Ōtara facility is one of only two centres delivering specialist spinal rehabilitation services for spinal cord impairment in NZ.
