Dunedin Hospital Redevelopment

Dunedin’s new hospital will be built on the Cadbury site and on the block next door to the North which currently contains a Wilson’s carpark.

The new site does not include the Otago Daily Times but it does include a Cadbury carpark over the road toward the Railway Station.

The new hospital will therefore take up parts of several blocks.

New Site

The site was chosen to maintain the compact and central nature of Dunedin’s health and education facilities while giving flexibility for the final design and allowing for further development later.

Interim Works Programme

A programme of re-fit and upgrade projects is underway to ensure clinical service continues while the longer term redevelopment of Dunedin Hospital is planned and carried out.

The first two of these projects are now complete as is Stage 1 of the major redevelopment of the Intensive Care Unit.

Our new expanded, family-friendly Audiology Unit is now open at Wakari Hospital.

And our new $3.2 million Gastroenterology Department on the 8th floor of Dunedin Hospital, is now open.

The timing of the unit’s opening dovetailed with the rollout of the National Bowel Screening Programme in the Southern district.


The new unit adds a second endoscopy suite and includes room for a third.

It has a gastrointestinal treatment room, separate admission and discharge rooms, and a 10-bed, 7-seat recovery area.

Meanwhile, construction continues on the hospital’s new ICU/HDU facility.

Stage One, with 12 bed spaces, is complete and work is now beginning on Stage Two.


The co-located ICU/HDU Service on the 5th floor of the Ward Block will have 22 bed spaces.
