Hospitals & Services
For many years CDHB has operated a whānau-family accommodation facility for eligible family members, supporting a whānau member using services at Christchurch Hospital campus.
With our new hospital underway on the previous site, a new location was required. Te Whare Mahana is now a stand-alone residence situated 0.65 kilometres from Christchurch campus.
This four-bedroom residence is within walking distance (8 to 10 minutes) of Christchurch and Christchurch Women's Hospitals. There are four lockable bedrooms of varying sizes named after native trees—Kauri, Tōtara, Kōwhai and Tī Kōuka.
There will be a cost for those eligible to stay at Te Whare Mahana although some may be eligible for funded accommodation. If you have any questions about this facility please speak to your social worker or Māori health worker.
