Your support

can bring the best maternity

Your donation to the New East Wing Building will help us create a maternity unit Taranaki can be proud of.

Why maternity?

Ask anyone who has given birth at Taranaki Base Hospital and you will hear the same story. "The staff are amazing but the department is looking a bit tired." The maternity department is the oldest continuously running department in the hospital, with the last major update being in the 90s.

The New East Wing Building (NEWB) will house a new maternity department that will provide familes across the region with the facilities and services they need to have a comfortable and enjoyable birthing experience, whilst providing the best medical care possible.

Your donation's impact

I wish we'd had the option of giving birth in a primary care unit.

How can you help?

The government is investing $400 million in the New East Wing Building for Taranaki, which will equip the new maternity unit to a standard level. We thing Taranaki deserves the best though, and so we are looking for additional donations that will help provide additional equipment and facilities.

Donating to Taranaki Health Founadtion, you are helping us commit to bring the best healthcare facilities to Taranaki. For maternity this means being able to provide a unit that is comforting for new parents, whilst also providing the clinical teams with the best equipment to give the best outcomes.
