A purpose-built bridge on the North Shore Hospital site has created a link between the hospital tower and the Elective Surgery Centre (ESC). The overhead bridge has been designed to meet the district’s rapidly expanding population and diverse health care needs by allowing easier patient transfer and more efficient use of bed capacity.
The sky bridge was opened on June 2016.
