The Auckland City Hospital is Auckland’s main hospital and the largest hospital in New Zealand, as well as one of the oldest medical facilities of the country. It is a publicly funded hospital, run by the Auckland District Health Board since 2001 and is located in the suburb of Grafton, east of the CBD.
The hospital is the region’s major tertiary referral hospital and New Zealand’s leading trauma centre and is a well-equipped, although relatively quiet hospital. As the country’s leading trauma hospital, the emergency department treats many trauma patients. Auckland City Hospital is New Zealand’s largest teaching hospital and has specialist paediatric unit (Starship Children’s Hospital). Other specialist services include liver and bone transplantation. Rare or complex medical conditions from all over New Zealand may get referred here.
The current hospital facility, opened in 2003, is an amalgamation of four previously separate hospitals: Auckland Hospital (acute adult care), Starship (acute children’s care), Green Lane Hospital (cardio-thoracic care) and National Women’s Hospital (maternity, new-born and obstetrics and gynecology). Therefore students have a variety ofchoices for an elective at this hospital.
