Health Te Aroha
Primary Healthcare Service
8:30 AM to 5:00 PM.
Designated GP Practice
We are a designated COVID-19 testing practice. You do not need to be an enrolled patient to get a test. Please call the practice for more information.
Health Te Aroha started in the late 1990’s. Tertius Coetzer and Paul Henry amalgamated three of the four solo practices in Te Aroha into one practice and named it Health Te Aroha. This practice moved into a purpose built building in 2001 where it has stayed until today.
We currently have 5500 patients and we offer care to the local community, covering the local rest homes, the community trust hospital and also college clinics.
We are a practice that is quality focused and enjoys innovation and being at the forefront of general practice.
The practice has prided itself on performing well in the quality plan with Midlands Health. In 2016 we achieved first place in the PHO for our quality performance.
