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 around 75,000 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 a range of innovative joint venture facilities and rehabilitation services operated in partnership with some of the country's 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, Travel Insurance, Life 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 and policyholders, making it one of the country’s most well-known and trusted healthcare brands.  With a shared interest in the health of our communities and a not-for-profit focus, Southern Cross' businesses have the size and experience to play a unique and important role in our health sector.

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.”
