Description

Pukekohe Hospital was opened in 1953 as a maternity unit. In 1979 a Geriatric ward was built.  Over time, the Hospital has changed its focus with ten clinic rooms utilised by visiting specialists from Counties Manukau DHB and the community.

Pukekohe Hospital currently has 26 beds, 10 of which are dedicated for Assessment Treatment and Rehabilitation. There is a full team of Senior Medical, Allied Health and Nursing staff. The balance of the beds are used for Respite and Palliative Care.  We continue to have a limited number of beds for residential care.

The service is managed by an Operations Manager, Charge Nurse Manager, Registered Nurses, Allied Health Professionals, Health Care Assistants and Administration staff.  They are supported by local General Practitioners and the Community Geriatrician from Counties Manukau Health.

Pukekohe Hospital hosts the Mobile Surgical Unit every six weeks, offering minor surgery on referral.

Maternity services, Home Health Care, Public Health Nurses and an Outpatient Rehabilitation Service are also based at the Hospital.

Two Resource Centres operate within the Pukekohe Hospital facility. 

The Centre for Independent Living (www.independentliving.org.nz) which offers advice and practical solutions for remaining active and independent at home. It is run by the health professional team from Home Health Care.

Also the Maternity Resource Centre offers advice for pregnancy and antenatal care.
