CAPITAL PROJECTS

Two of the most important capital projects that the A+ Trust has helped fund were fitting out the new Haematology and Bone Marrow Transplant Regional Facility at Auckland City Hospital and establishing the Fisher and Paykel Healthcare Clinical Education Centre.

The A+ Trust is key to raising funds for world class health facilities.

Haematology and Bone Marrow Transplant Regional Facility

This wonderful facility, known as the Motutapu Ward, cares for very ill long-stay patients who are significantly impacted by the treatment regime they undertake. The need for this new Haematology and Bone Marrow Transplant Regional Facility has never been greater. The development of new treatments together with an aging population has seen an increase in the need for this service.

The new Haematology and Bone Marrow Transplant Ward at the hospital has been able to double the number of beds available and significantly reduce patient waiting times for treatment. It has also provided support for families of long stay patients by having family areas with patient care spaces, pull-out beds for family members, natural light and relaxing aesthetics within those spaces.

With 16 single rooms, 3 four bedded rooms and one double room all giving patients natural light and views from the bedside, this beautiful new ward provides the support aspects of design and functionality of the Ward that are conducive to effective patient care and a positive healing environment.

 

"I am delighted to donate my collection of antique microscopes to the A+ Trust because I can’t think of a more worthy recipient. They have given me a lot of pleasure over my life time and I hope others will now get as much pleasure from seeing them on display as I have."
