Southern Cross Hospital North Harbour - Urology
Private Surgical Service
Established in 1991, our North Harbour Hospital typically provides services to over 7,000 patients annually, and is widely known amongst patients and specialists in the area. It is their demand for our services that drives new investments, and that has delivered significant extensions, implementation of new technologies, and ongoing improvements to operating and nursing facilities. Recent upgrades have also seen improvements to recovery and day stay and pre-admission facilities and specialist consulting areas.
Within the grounds of the North Harbour Hospital campus is the Northern Clinic, which comprises Specialist consulting, Endoscopy services, Image Guided Healthcare, Radiology services and rehabilitation.
The hospital campus offers specialists and their patients access to new advanced operating theatres, including a robotically-assisted surgical system and other advanced technologies to support advanced imaging and a range of minimally invasive treatments. New recovery areas and other patient facilities have also been added, during 2017, along with new consulting rooms and a purpose-built endoscopy suite. These facilities offer patients a wide range of specialist services on one developing health campus which also includes a pharmacy, radiology unit, cardiology services, and a specially designed post-operative intermediate care facility - which helps to increase the scope and complexity of surgical services that can be provided within the private sector on Auckland's North Shore.
