Countdown on until services start moving into the new Te Nīkau Grey Hospital & Health Centre

Tuesday 21 July 2020Facilities News2 minutes to read

The first services start moving in from this Thursday 23 July, with the final services due to open in the new facility on Monday 3 August.

As well as the new home for all of the usual hospital-based services, what makes Te Nīkau special is the fact that it really is a one stop shop.

From a visit with your general practice team to a surgical procedure you can have it all at Te Nīkau. There’s even a café and retail pharmacy.

Grey Medical Centre is relocating from Tainui Street to brand new purpose-designed rooms in Te Nīkau.  All phone numbers and email addresses will stay the same, so please phone to make an appointment or use the Health365 app.   Grey Medical Centre opens in Te Nīkau on Monday 3 August.

If you need to be seen urgently, but aren’t sick enough to be seen in the Emergency Department, you may be able to be seen in the Urgent Care clinic, an extension of the primary care service.

Primary health care services will be open 8am – 8pm daily. The fees for using Urgent Care are the same as seeing a GP at Grey Medical with those in the greatest need being seen soonest. 

Whether you’re coming in to visit someone in hospital, have an appointment in the Family Health Centre or need emergency care, entry is via the main entrance on the ground floor. Drive in off High Street, turn right and the main entrance to all services at Te Nīkau is under the black canopy.

There are more than 100 car public parks with 12 allocated for people with mobility passes close to the main entrance.

Available just below is information for the schedule of when services are opening in the new facility and a floor plan showing the location of services.
