We know – and clinicians have told us – this new facility will be a game-changer, enabling contemporary treatments (which they can’t currently offer) and enabling more effective and efficient treatment pathways. The new facility will include:
Dedicated outpatient physio treatment space
Sensorised environment and sensory room
State-of-the-art observation spaces for assessments, play, and family therapies
Separate, private entrance for emergency presentations
Specialty rooms for child psychotherapy
Purpose build clinic rooms for physical needs
Spacious group therapy rooms
Welcoming and culturally safe whanau room
Extensive outdoor landscaping with therapeutic interaction options
The Progress so far
A location for this facility has been confirmed, and detailed design work is underway. It’s happening!
The facility, which is being jointly developed by Māia and Te Whatu Ora Health New Zealand Waitaha Canterbury, will be located at the former Canterbury Linen Services building, on the outskirts of the Hillmorton campus.
Substantial public funding has been approved to redevelop the site, including earthquake strengthening to provide an upgraded ‘shell’. Once this first phase is complete a full fit-out will be carried out, creating a modern, fit-for-purpose CAF outpatient facility. It is this fit-out and enhancements that will be largely funded by Māia.
The facility is due to be completed in 2024.
We’re excited about this next mission which we know will be transformational for our region’s children and young people. Join us.
