YOUR FUTURE HOSPICE
We are embarking on a significant project to refit and refurbish Hospice on the North Shore
Demand for palliative care across the Harbour Hospice region is expected to grow by 50% in the next 15 years, and 90% in the next 40 years. Our facilities must grow to enable us to meet this demand and deliver our unique community model of care.
But we cannot wait. We must act now.
OUR POPULATION IS GROWING RAPIDLY
The demand for our services across the Harbour Hospice region is set to increase by 50% by 2034, and 90% in the next 40 years
For 36 years hospice has provided specialist palliative care for North Shore residents and their families. Currently we provide care and support to more than 750 local families per year. As a result of rapid population growth and people living longer with more complex conditions, the demand for our services across the Harbour Hospice region is set to increase by 50% by 2034, and 90% in the next 40 years.
WE MUST ACT NOW
Our current building will not meet future demands. In addition, our Inpatient Unit needs to be reclad within three years if we are to continue to provide this vital community service and this has hastened the urgency to develop our Hospice facility. After seeking advice from health service planning consultants, respected local business people, our own staff and volunteers and, most importantly, patients and their families, redeveloping our current site is the only way forward. Doing nothing is not an option.
BUILDING A WORLD CLASS HOSPICE
Your new local hospice will be a stunning, serene space where local patients, caregivers and family will benefit from world class services and support. Designed by New Zealand architectural firm, Klein (specialists in healthcare design), the building will have flexible, multi-use spaces for patients, employees and community groups.
FURTHER UPDATES COMING SOON
We are currently in the first stage of major donor outreach. Please return to this page for further updates.
If you are interested in being involved at this early stage, or would like more information, please email our Campaign Coordinator at Kate.Thompson@harbourhospice.org.nz.
HOW IT IS FUNDED
Thanks to an incredibly supportive community we have built up a capital fund over the last ten years, but we need to raise additional funds to achieve our vision.
This will be achieved through a proven model specific to capital campaigns, involving personal donor outreach and community support.
