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.

- a professional, caring nursing team, whose focus is on the patients’ wellbeing and comfort
- 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
- support from our team to ensure that from admission to discharge, the administrative procedures run as smoothly as possible
- flexible visiting hours and visiting arrangements to ensure a restful environment for all of our patients
