After extensive consultation, Grace Hospital was designed, constructed and opened in 2007. This purpose built facility initially provided 5 operating theatres, 48 inpatient beds, a two bed HDU, and a procedure room for endoscopy. By 2009 the sixth theatre was opened to cater for the increasing number of patients requiring surgery.
In 2009, Bay Radiology who had plain film imaging facilities on site requested an extension to their rooms for CT and MRI scanning. This development took place and the enlarged facility opened in 2010. The MRI installed in 2010 was replaced in 2015 with a newer technology model to provide better imaging.
When Grace Hospital opened in 2007, Tauranga Anaesthetic Group became tenants of the consultancy suite on site with the facility being used for pre-op anaesthetic assessments.
In 2014 a dedicated day stay facility was opened to meet the increasing demand for day stay procedures. The Oropi centre has two procedure rooms, one for minor surgery and the other specifically for endoscopy.
The first floor of the Oropi centre has two consulting suites – The Tauranga Anaesthetic group have moved from their original location to one of the suites which provides them with a larger facility. The other suite is currently being used for nursing pre-assessment clinics.
Also on the first floor is a new education centre for Grace Hospital staff. The large modern training room is also available for hire for medical education. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
