New sky bridge development in plan to expand patient care to Waitemata community

Waitemata District Health Board (DHB) is constructing a sky bridge linking the Elective Surgery Centre (ESC) with the main hospital tower as part of plans to further integrate and expand services on the North Shore Hospital site.

The bridge creates a covered link between the main hospital tower block and the ESC, allowing the DHB to perform more complex surgeries as facilities continue to expand, including plans under development for an additional ward on the ESC site.

Waitemata DHB Chief Executive Dr Dale Bramley says the sky bridge will allow increased staff and patient-transfer flow between the main hospital and the ESC as the DHB’s facilities grow to meet the demands of our rapidly rising population.
