Mercy Hospital was established in 1936 and relocated to the current Maori Hill site in 1969.
The main focus is private elective surgery with six theatres, a two bed ICU facility, forty-one inpatient beds, twenty-four day surgery beds, six day surgery chairs along with a fully equipped Cardiac Catheterisation Lab.
The architects needed fire rated sliding doors for operating theatres on this project. As there was tight space, hinged doors would take up too much swing room in the corridors so the sliding doors were an ideal solution for ease of entry for trolley bed access to the theatres. The doors also needed to have a fire rating to the New Zealand fire standards as they were being used in a fire rated wall and Dortek were able to provide all the necessary certification for these door types. As these were operating theatres, the doors need to be of a high hygienic standard.
Mercy Hospital new operating theatres required fire rated sliding doors to meet New Zealand Fire Certification codes but also offer high hygienic standards for operating theatres. Dortek were able to provide our hygienic GRP fire rated sliding doors with auto opening and safety sensors.
