Architecture HDT was engaged by the Hawkes Bay District Health Board to design the Wairoa Integrated Family Health Centre - an addition to the existing Wairoa Hospital buildings. The facility houses GPs, public health and district nurses, midwives, mental health staff, social workers and ambulance personnel to deliver much needed health services to the remote district. The project included the modernisation of the existing buildings, and new GP suites.
The new Main Entry and Reception Area is open and welcoming. The angular canopies and curved raised planter effortlessly contrast with the existing buildings, effectively linking the aesthetic of these and the new addition.
