Welcome to the projects area. Here you will find information about projects running at Te Whatu Ora Taranaki.

South Taranaki Rural Model of Care

At the end of 2019 an enhanced rural model of care was proposed for the South Taranaki community which aims to improve health outcomes by enabling people to receive the right care, at the right time, in the right place.

Project Maunga

Stage Two
Te Whatu Ora Taranaki is moving ahead with both Project Maunga Stage Two and the Seismic Risk Management Plan (SRMP). Project Maunga will see the construction of the new East Wing Building (NEWB), a 20,000m2, six-storey building housing many of Taranaki Base Hospital’s acute clinical services including ED, ICU, Maternity, Primary Birthing, Neonatal, Radiology, Laboratory and a roof-top helipad. The SRMP will see the construction of a new Renal Building, Energy Centre, Computer Room as well as an upgrade to critical site wide infrastructure and the demolition of the C-Block (where Renal currently is).

Stage One
Health Minister Hon Tony Ryall officially opened the Taranaki Base Hospital redevelopment (Project Maunga) on Friday 27 June 2014. The development offers a modern facility that benefits patients, staff and the community as a whole.

Sustainability - Go Zero Carbon

Go Zero Carbon is the work we do as an organisation to implement the environmental sustainability/pūmoutanga framework to achieve our ‘zero-carbon by 2050 and zero waste by 2040’ goals. It encompasses two climate change responses:

  • how we affect climate change by reducing our carbon footprint (mitigation); and
  • how climate change affects us and how we respond (adaptation)

These goals (and the work required to achieve them) are mandated by national and international law, as well as the Ministry of Health (MoH). They are supported by Taranaki DHB Board, Executive Management and hospital leadership teams.

There’s plenty of work to be done to achieve our 2040 and 2050 goals, however we have plans and strategies in place and we look forward to working with staff and the community to achieve this.
