By late January 2022, construction was nearing completion. This photograph shows at left the elevated corridor connecting the new hospital to the main Regional Hospital building.
The new hospital was officially handed over to CCDHB by Mark Dunajtschik and Dorothy Spotswood on 31 March, 2022.
The DHB will now fit out the hospital before it opens to the public later this year.
