Congratulations to Mark Dunajtschik, who was last night named a Wellington icon at the Wellington Gold Awards. This is a well-deserved accolade for an amazing man.
As well as donating $50 million to build Te Wao Nui, our new regional children’s hospital, Mark also took the opportunity to announce that he and partner Dorothy Spotswood have donated another up to $50 million for a new mental health centre in the Hutt Valley.
The modern 34-bed adult mental health facility on the Hutt Hospital campus will replace an old existing 24-bed unit.
Opening in mid 2025, the Mark Dunajtschik Mental Health Centre, will be a much needed facility for a service which is currently under enormous pressure.
