MaxCare Medical Centre
Primary Healthcare Service
MaxCare is situated in the heart of Otahuhu, the Otahuhu Town Centre. The site was chosen for three key reasons:
to provide you with better accessibility to our facilities by being near public transport (bus, train) provided in the local region of Otahuhu
to provide better access to those of you who travel via private transport, with ample parking space
to decrease the workload from our main hospitals with the additional benefit of reducing your waiting time.
If you choose to enrol with us we will provide a proactive approach to your healthcare rather than wait for a minor issue to fester into a major health problem. However this can only be achieved if you are willing to reach out. We believe that this approach will result in a healthier and more productive community with lower physical, mental and medical costs for you and your loved ones.
