The North Shore Hospital is in Takapuna on Auckland’s North Shore, 30 minutes from the city centre, located close to Lake Pupuke. It is close to beaches, bars and cafés, and provides services for acute medical, surgical, obstetric and psychiatric needs. A new Intensive Care Unit has recently been built. The hospital is administered by the Waitemata District Health Board and serves around 47,000 people each year.
The hospital is mainly a mix of surgical and general medical beds, with a slightly larger emphasis on general medical beds. In addition to these ward beds, the hospital has nine operating theatres (one specialised in obstetric care), an emergency care centre, an intensive care unit with five beds and a coronary care unit with eight beds, as well as a maternity and a special care baby unit, all of which ensure that the hospital can cover a variety of services to facilitate the needs of the local community.
In addition to the on site services there are also several other departments situated around the hospital and some services close to the hospital, although not integral to it. The hospital is fairly centrally located, however it still benefits from a range of visiting specialists who cover a number of further medical sub-disciplines including Neurology and Oncology. Two of the wards specialise in assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of patients over 65 years of age, so the hospital is a good choice for those interested in this area of medicine.
