New Wellington Regional Children’s Hospital

Capital & Coast District Health Board


McKee Fehl is delighted to play a pivotal role in the landmark development of the New Wellington Regional Children’s Hospital.

This much anticipated and purpose-built hospital is a highly technical project that will house state-of-the-art facilities uniquely designed to treat children in one centralised space in Newtown.

Scheduled to open in 2021, the new children’s hospital will be spread across three floors with 50 beds and 21 clinical rooms. Situated at the northern end of the Wellington campus, the Children’s Hospital will connect to the main hospital via a link bridge.

This project was made possible by a generous $50m donation from 2017 Wellingtonian of the Year: Mark Dunajtschik.

McKee Fehl is working closely with Capital & Coast District Health Board, industry consultants and health care specialists to build a world-class facility that meets the utmost needs of children and their families in their toughest hours.

The official start of construction was formalised at a mauri stone laying ceremony on 7th November 2018.
