Wakefield Hospital – Stage 2

Wakefield Hospital is the largest private hospital in the Wellington region, located on a 2.2ha site 5km south of Wellington’s CBD.


Vital has committed to a full redevelopment of Wakefield planned in stages to minimize disruption to ongoing business continuity. The completed development will result in a seismically resilient, modern and functional facility including eight operating theatres, 47 beds, a 3,000 sqm medical consulting building and over 260 carparks.


The first stage of this project involved the construction of a new building housing medical specialist consulting space, a full radiology unit, and new administration and front of house areas and is complete. Stage 1 of the Wakefield development was judged and provided an excellence award at the 2022 property council awards in the civic, health and arts category.


Stage 2 comprising the new theatres and beds is underway with demolition completed and earthworks commenced.


The project incorporates a base isolated design. This reduces the potential for critical damage during an earthquake and increases the probability that services will continue to be provided following a material seismic event.


The combined value of the development works is approximately NZD$141m (Vital’s commitment NZD$112.8m) and is being undertaken on an agreed return on cost whereby the development costs are converted into additional rent for the operating partner, Evolution Healthcare.
