Investing in quality

We are aware that we are serving an increasingly large catchment area, and we continue to work to deliver quality services, not only to Southern Cross members, but also to patients with other forms of private insurance cover, those choosing to fund their surgery themselves and patients being funded by ACC and other public funding arrangements.

Here’s what you can expect from Southern Cross Hospital Hamilton:

  • To make your stay as comfortable as possible, rooms for overnight stay have an ensuite, television, radio, telephone and WiFi.

Our goal is to offer the finest private facilities in the Waikato.  Our recent upgrades and extensions are important steps on the path to accommodating the increasing demands from patients and medical specialists alike, including onsite overnight medical cover from Monday through to Saturday.

Ultra-modern operating theatres and facilities are supported by rigorous sterilisation systems and the strictest safety methodologies. Additional consulting rooms for on-site radiology have been added to our on-site facilities for specialists and patients.
