The Māia Health Foundation is on a mission to enhance the health experience in Canterbury – taking it from good to great. With a shortage of suitable sleeping options for parents in the children’s wards at Christchurch Hospital, this often means sleeping upright or in uncomfortable conditions.
Māia is bringing 60 fold down parent beds to the children’s wards in the new acute services building at Christchurch Hospital. r+m are thrilled to be behind this initiative and have proudly donated one parent bed.
