North Shore Hospital Redevelopment

Under Delivery
North Shore Hospital Redevelopment

In 2018, the New Zealand Government committed to building a new elective surgery unit at North Shore Hospital in Auckland. 

The new surgical unit will be four storeys and will consist of:

  • four new wards with 120 beds
  • four new operating theatres
  • new endoscopy suites
  • clinical support services spaces, and
  • extended Sky Bridge link connecting the surgical hospital to the main hospital tower block.

Demolition of ageing non-clinical hospital buildings was expected to get underway in 2019, to make way for the new surgical unit. It is expected that the demolition will take approximately 12 months, with construction of the new building estimated to take an additional three years.
