“To be the Healthcare Hub of excellence, chosen by our communities.”




Our Values

Passion in our people – We value the contribution each team member makes; we take pride in our work and building strong relationships; we bring a positive attitude to work and treat each other with respect and inclusivity; and we communicate in a respectful, timely, open and honest manner.

Courage to change – We are curious and see change as an opportunity to improve and grow; we collaborate, share ideas, plan and engage in positive communication that drives change; and we are brave when change is agreed and we embrace change with urgency.

Caring with empathy – We care for our patients and show them kindness and respect; we recognise the importance of family/whanau support and keep them informed where possible; we provide a safe environment that is inclusive of all cultural needs; and we advocate for our patients and act as their voice when they are unable to speak.

Excellence in what we do – We exceed expectations and go the extra mile – if we don’t know the answer, we make the effort to find it; we strive to deliver high standards of care through professional behaviour, practice and presentation; we support and engage in ongoing education and professional development; and we ensure our teams have the best skill mix to provide an optimal service.
