Currently our Wakefield Hospital redevelopment is underway. This is a significant investment in the Wellington community, with $130 million committed to substantially redevelop the campus. The facility has been designed to the latest seismic codes and standards, making Wakefield one of the safest hospitals in New Zealand with the use of base isolators.

Our new hospital will provide central New Zealand with access to some of the most advanced medical services and treatment in the country, using the latest medical technologies.

Once completed, Wakefield Hospital will have 37 patient rooms, 10 ICU beds, six theatres and recovery areas, a cardiac cath lab, an endoscopy suite, medical imaging and much more. Wakefield Hospital theatres will also include AirFRAME technology upon their completion.

Our Net Promoter Score

What is Net Promoter Score (NPS)?

Net Promoter Score (NPS) is a metric used to measure customer loyalty as it relates to company brand or to a product or service.

How is Net Promoter Score calculated?

Subtracting the percentage of Detractors from the percentage of Promoters yields the Net Promoter Score, which can range from a low of -100 (if every patient is a Detractor) to a high of 100 (if every patient is a Promoter).
