Care is at the heart of everything
Southern Cross Healthcare does

Southern Cross Healthcare are very proud to be Kiwis' favourite private hospitals; a trusted part of the New Zealand healthcare system for over 40 years; and that 91% of our hospital patients would recommend us to others, based on our latest patient satisfaction surveys.

In 2019 Southern Cross Healthcare looked after more than 86,000 people at our wholly owned and joint venture hospitals and day surgery facilities.

Our elective surgery services are available throughout New Zealand through ten Southern Cross wholly owned hospitals and five joint venture partnerships.

Our hospitals include modern, well-equipped operating theatres and procedure rooms and excellent, comfortable patient facilities. They boast a range of advanced clinical technologies and many offer options such as higher dependency nursing, specialist consulting suites and on-site imaging and diagnostic technologies.

Around 1,000 surgeons and anaesthetists use our facilities in private practice. We do not employ doctors directly, but work with them to develop our healthcare services. All independent medical specialists complete a Southern Cross Healthcare credentialling process before admitting their patients to one of our hospitals.
