Lakes District Health Board has selected Fletcher Construction Company Ltd for the Taupo Hospital redevelopment.
Fletcher set up onsite late in October 2012.
The redevelopment will see the Taupo ED double in size, from six to 12 cubicles, plus the inclusion of the Maternity Unit into the main hospital building, co-located with the ED.
Other features will include:
• New Radiology unit alongside ED with space provided for future modalities
• All the Inpatient unit bedrooms have ensuites.
• Outpatients area is being redeveloped and brought up to date.
Additionally, work to lift the seismic performance of the hospital building to the required levels, will see the full redevelopment of the inpatient ward area.
Lakes DHB apologises for any inconvenience arising from the building programme.
We would like to hear from you. We welcome any feedback about the services we provide to you.
