How your hospital & health centre works
Te Nīkau Hospital & Health Centre is a fit for purpose, modern facility designed to be a one-stop shop for health care.
- We see people for planned appointments, respond to people with urgent needs, admit and monitor patients that are more seriously unwell and stabilise emergency patients that require critical or specialist care.
- If you already have an appointment you will be directed to the appropriate waiting area.
- If you arrive with no appointment, you will initially be seen by a nurse who will ask you some questions to help us decide how urgent it is for you to be seen.
- Depending on your needs, you may be seen in the Emergency Department or in the Urgent Care clinic.
