Administrated by the Taranaki District Health Board, Taranaki Base Hospital is the main hospital in the region and is located in New Plymouth. An extensive upgrading programme has meant that a range of specialist medical and surgical services are now provided from some of the most modern facilities in the country.
The new building that has been constructed as part of the redevelopment is the West Wing and it is a six storey building that has a new inpatient ward and a dedicated operating theatre floor complete with six theatres, recovery and day surgery facilities. The internal planning is based on ‘nature as metaphor’ and according to the architects the principles of the scheme reflect ‘healing, calming, assurance, restful and therapeutic analogies.’
