Introducing our business
“Welcome to Southern Cross Hospitals Limited. We operate New Zealand’s largest network of private surgical hospitals, and our focus is on delivering quality care and value for money.
We play a key role in improving the health of New Zealanders, by providing access to quality elective surgical services for more than 65,000 people each year. This represents about one third of the private elective surgery market in New Zealand, across a wide range of medical specialties.
Our hospital network spans the length and breadth of New Zealand and consists of ten wholly-owned hospitals, as well as eight innovative joint venture facilities operated in partnership with leading healthcare specialists.
Our business is owned by the Southern Cross Health Trust, a charitable trust which exists to benefit all New Zealanders. Although we operate independently, with a separate Board of Directors, we make up part of the Southern Cross Healthcare Group of businesses that include Health Insurance, Primary Care, Travel Insurance and Southern Cross Pet Insurance.
Collectively the businesses within the Southern Cross Healthcare Group reach around one million people each year, as members, patients, policyholders and account holders, making it one of the country’s most well-known and trusted healthcare brands.
Since we were established in 1979, Southern Cross Hospitals has grown in both size and scope of services offered. We’re passionate about achieving our vision: to provide a growing number of New Zealanders with high quality and affordable private hospital care.”
