Transition Lounge

The Transition Lounge is a waiting area for patients who are: 

  • waiting for an outpatient appointment
  • waiting to be admitted to a ward, either acute or elective, other areas or hospitals.
  • waiting for discharge paperwork or to be picked up for transfer home or ongoing care.

It provides comfortable seats, refreshments, TV, phone, magazines and experienced nurses who are able to help with medications and supervise your care.


The Transition Lounge is located on level 5, close to the entrance from Car Park A (up the ramp as you come into the grounds from Park Road).

Go through the hospital entrance, opposite car park A. The entrance to the Transition Lounge is on your right just around the corner from the Information Desk.

Just outside the entrance is a 20-minute parking zone providing free and convenient pick-up for whānau and carers.

Opening hours

Monday to Friday 6.30am to 7pm.
