Building a purpose-built hospice has given us the opportunity to create something special for our community; a place in which we can continue to provide the very best care, support and lasting life memories for patients and their families for many years to come.
Following the Christchurch earthquakes, Te Omanga Hospice’s building at 136 Woburn Road was assessed as earthquake prone and the decision was made to rebuild it on the current site. The new hospice was completed and officially opened on 11 April 2019. It includes better facilities and improved efficiencies, contributing to our long-term economic sustainability. It is also safer for everyone – our patients and their families, staff and volunteers.
We say a heartfelt THANK YOU to our generous community and everyone who has helped rebuild Te Omanga Hospice. Together, we have reached our target and raised an incredible $10 million.
In 2020 Te Omanga Hospice won two prestigious property awards for the design and build of the new hospice. We are very grateful to have such a well thought out and superbly designed building that will serve the needs of our community for many years to come.
