About Southern Cross Hospitals Ltd (National Office)
Southern Cross Hospitals operates New Zealands largest network of private surgical hospitals. We also deliver a wide range of healthcare services across the country, through partnerships which offer Kiwis access to surgery, medicine, and inpatient and community-based rehabilitation services, as well as workplace wellness services.
New Zealand wide, our hospitals and nurses have been setting benchmarks in patient satisfaction in surveys within Australasia, and were passionate about being a leader in our sector in quality, safety and overall patient experience.
Operating since 1979, our hospitals have grown in terms of size, sophistication and scope of services and today make a significant contribution within the wider health sector. We work with health insurers and other funders and organisations in both the public and private health sectors, increasing Kiwis access to quality healthcare.
Our network is owned by Southern Cross Health Trust, a charitable trust which exists to benefit all New Zealanders and which supports a broad range of charitable initiatives that address unmet health-related needs, as well as charitable surgery in our hospitals.
The Southern Cross group as a whole employs well over 2,500 people who are passionate about supporting a healthier New Zealand. More than one million New Zealanders currently look to us to receive the very best care and services.
