We're hard at work upgrading the hospital to provide the best care possible for you and your whānau. 

Over the next 15 years health care demand will increase at a rate higher than our present health system can cope with. 

We have already started a number of projects to upgrade our facilities at Hawke’s Bay Fallen Soldiers Memorial Hospital (Hawke’s Bay Hospital). However, over the coming years more investment in our buildings and facilities is required to support growth.

Work is underway to develop a site master plan and a business case for the Ministry of Health that will help guide future construction at Hawke’s Bay Hospital.

Over the next 18 months we will undertake planning and develop options. Community feedback will help to guide this work. There will be formal opportunities to have your say over the next 18 months and we welcome your feedback at any time - contact us below. 

Surgical Services Expansion

The first project you will notice underway at Hawke's Bay Hospital is the Surgical Services Expansion Project. The upgrade will give Hawke's Bay an additional theatre to perform public surgeries and will help to improve patient experience as well as create a better working environment for our team.

Radiology Refurbishment

Another project is also underway to refurbish our radiology department with construction expected to start later this year. This will support us to provide quality diagnostics and procedures for a range of conditions, including heart disease, diabetes and cancers.
