Christchurch DHB to update public on redevelopment

A public meeting will be held tonight to give an update on the Christchurch District Health Board’s $650 million redevelopment.

The project has now moved into a development design stage ahead of planned construction, after preliminary designs for the acute services building were signed off last week.

Once complete, the new facility will boast new operating theatres, around 400 new beds, an expanded intensive care unit, new emergency department, and rooftop helipad.

The hospital redevelopment partnership group will answer questions at the Canterbury Horticultural Centre on Riccarton Avenue from 5.30pm.
