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

Established in 1983, and the only private surgical hospital in the city, our hospital provides services to around 4500 patients each year.

A programme of extensive modernisation and facility upgrades has enabled the hospital to offer a wide range of services to patients in the wider Taranaki region. The hospital features advanced theatres and comfortable patient facilities, and currently has 37 inpatient beds, and a day-stay facility that caters for 10 patients at any time.
