Southern Cross Hospital Rotorua - General Surgery

Private Surgical Service

This is where you will come to have your surgery performed. The visits to your surgeon before and after surgery will be at their consulting rooms.

Description

Situated on Otonga Road, our hospital is the result of a multi-million dollar development, following integration of the QE Health surgical resources within the existing Southern Cross hospital in 2009. The hospital offers services to patients in Rotorua, Taupo, Bay of Plenty and the Waikato. They can access excellent facilities that include 3 high-tech operating theatres, and a range of new and upgraded environments designed to support medical specialists and nursing teams.
