This teaching hospital is also a major tertiary referral centre providing specialised and emergency healthcare for the catchment area of 900,000 people. It is the only major District Health Board in New Zealand to offer all surgical specialties on one campus and is the major trauma hospital for the region. The Intensive Care Unit is a 16-bed facility and caters for patients undergoing cardiac surgery, paediatric (child) and general adult intensive care. The department runs an inter-hospital critical care retrieval service that transports patients back to the hospital from other hospitals in the region. The ICU team is an important part of the cardiac arrest and trauma teams at the hospital.
The hospital's location is ideal for outdoor enthusiasts who will be spoiled for choice as it is within easy reach of beautiful coast lines and in land ski-fields.
