Oamaru Hospital

Welcome to Oamaru Hospital. We are the only hospital providing secondary level healthcare services to the population of the Waitaki District. Our catchment population is approximately 22,000 within a large boundary area of approximately 8,990 square kilometres.

Our hospital is operated by the Waitaki District Health Services Ltd, a company owned by the Waitaki District Council as the community agency which facilitated the take-over of health services, when HealthCare Otago withdrew from providing rural health services in 1998. The health service company took over operations at the old Oamaru Hospital on 1 July 1999 operating from there until the new hospital was commissioned in August 2000.

Now located in the central business area of Oamaru, adjacent to Takaro Park, Oamaru Hospital now strives to provide high quality hospital and community healthcare services close to home.
