Hutt Hospital, located in Lower Hutt in the south of North Island, supplies secondary services to the Hutt valley and regional services to the Wellington region and the lower half of the North Island. It falls under the care of the Hutt Valley District Health Board, which was formed in 2001 and is a government-funded organisation responsible for planning, funding and providing health care and disability support services for approximately 141,400 residents of the Hutt Valley.
The hospital provides secondary and tertiary medical and surgical services, complimenting the primary and community based health care that is also available in the region. Approximately half the annual budget of the DHB is spent on hospital and mental health services and the other half funds a range of primary a community health providers, so students are likely to be exposed to a range of care initiatives if working at this hospital.
