A new acute mental health facility will be built in Waikato to provide better care and support to people with mental health and addiction issues. The new facility will replace the ageing Henry Rongomau Bennett Centre.
The design will be developed alongside the business case.
The facility is expected to have a 63 to 73 bed capacity, which is an increase of 10 to 20 beds compared to the existing facility.
