Te Whatu Ora leads the day-to-day running of the health system across New Zealand, with functions delivered at local, district, regional and national levels.

Infrastructure and investment

Getting our health infrastructure right is crucial to enable the health workforce to deliver care safely and effectively. Safe, fit for purpose health facilities, sites and equipment are essential for a well-functioning health system.

We have brought our public hospital buildings together into one portfolio - infrastructure and investment. As the single owner we can ensure that the health estate supports the delivery of services and we invest to improve the health of all New Zealanders.

We are currently planning, monitoring or delivering more than 100 projects around the country to support the regions and districts, which includes the New Dunedin Hospital.

Our key stakeholders

Te Whatu Ora is responsible for delivering the new hospital. Project Whakatuputupu, the New Dunedin Hospital, is overseen by a Project Steering Group and a Clinical Transformation Group. Otago’s University, Polytechnic, Workforce Central Dunedin and a local Advisory Group are also involved.

The New Dunedin Hospital

The New Dunedin Hospital will be a modern, efficient and patient-centred teaching hospital. With a five Green Star sustainability rating, the building's design and use of latest technology will mean greater efficiency, including patient flow around the hospital and better access to diagnostics and treatment spaces, reducing unnecessary delays.
