"A hospital in the park, the park in the hospital."

Chow:Hill were lead consultants involved in the business case for the $670M redevelopment of Christchurch and Burwood Hospitals. This led to our team’s appointment as architects and health planners for the new Acute Services Building at Christchurch Hospital (together with Warren & Mahoney and Thinc Health, collectively known as Katoa Health Design). When completed the project will provide 413 in-patient beds, 12 operating theatres, a 48-bed ICU, and Radiology and Emergency Department. Support facilities will include the Sterile Services unit, as well as staff amenities and offices. This new state of the art health facility will offer 8 x 32-bed in-patient wards, a specialised Oncology unit, and 2 x 24-bed paediatric wards, in addition to a 21-bed Haematology ward (Bone Marrow Transplant unit), with 9 associated day spaces, and a 10-bed Child Oncology ward, with 6 associated day spaces. Many of the spaces, including the innovative linear multi bed rooms, were developed through intensive consultation and prototyping. This building sets the benchmark for the next generation of hospital buildings in New Zealand.

Construction will be complete in late 2018.
