Te Nīkau, Grey Hospital & Health Centre – open to the public from Wednesday

Monday 27 July 2020Health news2 minutes to read

The new Greymouth hospital and health centre, Te Nīkau, opens its doors to the public on Wednesday 29 July.

Until that time the doors will be locked, so please keep reporting to the current Grey Base Hospital until Wednesday.

  • The new Emergency Department will open at 7am on Wednesday the 29th and the new Maternity suite will be open from midday on Wednesday. 
  • The following day, Thursday 30 July, all medical and surgical inpatients, including the children’s ward, will move across to Te Nīkau.

As Te Nīkau will be a fully integrated facility, the team at Grey Medical Centre will be open from Monday 3 August. If you’re a patient at Grey Medi, from next Monday you’ll be coming to see the team in their new rooms within Te Nīkau. That’s also the day the blood testing team will start working from Te Nīkau along with outpatient and allied health services (which includes physio and occupational therapy) and the new café for staff and patients, Peaberry & Co, will have coffee on the go from 8am.

There are more than 100 new car parks plus 12 mobility parks for patients and visitors close to the main entrance. Staff have separate parking areas.

From Wednesday, to get to the new main entrance and parking area come into the current hospital site off High Street, drive up over the bridge and turn right to Te Nīkau. Until then it’s business as usual for all services in the current Grey Base Hospital.
