Our Hospital

Welcome to our Christchurch hospital

I wish to extend to you a very warm welcome to our hospital.

Our aim is to make you as comfortable as possible during your stay - at a time when you will naturally be a little anxious. Our advanced hospital facilities and modern patient areas should play their part in that, and our experienced team will do all they can to help and support you.

We always try to make your hospital visit a positive experience. If you have questions or need information, please just ask one of my very capable staff. I am always keen to get your feedback too, so if you have any feedback or comments that may help us to fine-tune our service, please let me know.

I wish you well during your stay with us. You'll be in safe hands.

Hospital Manager
