The Healing Garden is OPEN!

... and it is thanks to you!

New Zealand’s first large-scale indoor hospital Healing Garden is finished and this week it’s green embrace is welcoming patients and visitors to the new hospital building known as Tōtara Haumaru.

The finished Healing Garden is just as we’d all imagined and it’s thanks to your generosity that it’s been possible to create this lush 400sqm indoor living garden which creates the most beautiful peaceful and serene sanctuary in the centre of the hospital. 

Your belief in the hospital Healing Garden project and your desire to be involved and generously donate means that patients and their loved ones will likely feel calmer and a little less anxious during their hospital stay. 

The wellbeing of everyone who comes into this new hospital, for generations to come, will be improved thanks to you.

You might like to know that with the support of many generous donors Well Foundation has been able to assist with three key projects for the new hospital – a contribution to enabling robotic surgery (the first of its kind in a public hospital in New Zealand), a dedicated whānau room on each ward providing privacy and comfort for family when they have a loved one in critical care and the magnificent Healing Garden in the central atrium – all made possible thanks to kind hearted and generous individuals, businesses and the community who have a desire to help others.

Our impact is only made possible through the following incredibly generous organisations:
