Investing in quality

At our Wellington hospital, our promise is a quality-driven service. We deliver quality care, not only to Southern Cross members, but also to patients with other private medical insurers.

  • comfortable private rooms for overnight stay, with a large ensuite, television and radio facilities
  • nourishing, quality meals for overnight patients (with attention to your special dietary needs on request)
  • a modern, well-equipped day-stay facility for those not requiring overnight stay

  • delivery of complimentary newspapers on request
  • flexible visiting hours and visiting arrangements to ensure a restful environment for all of our patients
