We also provide niche specialist tertiary services for regional and national consumers in orthopaedic and plastic surgery, burns, spinal injury rehabilitation, renal dialysis, and neonatal intensive care. All Counties Manukau Health facilities are smoke-free.

Visitor Restrictions

All Counties Manukau Health hospital facilities now have a “no visitors” policy in place (during National Alert Level 4) - with only a few exceptions to allow for visitors due to exceptional health and compassionate circumstances.  We know this is a distressing time, and thank you for your patience and understanding.

Exceptional circumstances for visits include supporting a patient who is critically ill, deteriorating or dying, or a parent/guardian who is supporting a young child. At this time, no children under 15 years can visit, and we ask that no food or clothing items for patients are bought into the wards. Click here for more information.


If you are unwell, you must stay at home.

These restrictions apply to all hospitals and outpatient facilities. 
Other Facilities:
Inpatient services are also provided at our other facilities, which include Kidz First Children's Hospital, the Manukau Surgery Centre, Pukekohe Hospital, Franklin Memorial Hospital, Botany Downs Maternity Unit and Papakura Maternity Unit as well as dedicated mental health and rehabilitation units.    Outpatient services are primarily provided at Manukau SuperClinic and Botany SuperClinic.
