About Te Nikau Hospital & Health Centre

Disclaimer of content: As this is a new facility and information is updated as it becomes available, we cannot guarantee correctness of content presented here.

The health services previously provided by our Greymouth hospital (Grey Base hospital) and one of our Greymouth medical practices, formerly known as Greymouth Medical Centre are now combined, therefore providing comprehensive health services under just one roof. 

If you need health care, simply come in via the main entrance and see one of our receptionists there who will look after you and point you in the right direction, or assist you with your queries.

Te Nikau, Grey Hospital & Health Centre, located in Greymouth on the West Coast of New Zealand’s South Island, is a modern health facility that opened in July of 2020.
