North Shore Surgical Centre now open
Southern Cross Hospitals' joint venture partnership with a group of leading orthopaedic surgeons sees the opening, at the start of September, of a new state-of-the-art day stay hospital in Takapuna. The new facility, on Auckland’s North Shore, will meet rising demand for high quality care within the area.
North Shore Surgical Centre, which is located just across the road from North Shore Hospital, will open with two operating theatres, offering short stay orthopaedic operations. The new hospital and clinic will be expanded to offer a third operating room in future.
The North Shore has the fastest growing population in New Zealand and its population is also ageing, so Southern Cross Hospitals expects this to be a welcome addition to healthcare options in the region. “This day-stay hospital will focus on performing keyhole orthopaedic operations, using the very latest techniques and state-of-the art equipment,” explains orthopaedic surgeon Tony Danesh-Clough. “It will offer patients timely, high quality care, while minimising wait times and getting them back on their feet more quickly.”
