The redevelopment of Nelson Hospital in New Zealand is expected to take another decade to complete due to the demands of a growing and aging population. The George Manson and Percy Brunette Buildings have been deemed earthquake-prone and require remedial works by November 2028. Preliminary work on the redevelopment, including earthquake strengthening, has already begun with $73 million in funding. The overall development is estimated to cost around $1 billion, with construction expected to begin in 2026 and be completed by 2033. The new hospital will have increased bed capacity and a larger emergency department.
