About Us


Grace Hospital was opened in 2007 and is Tauranga's only private specialist surgical hospital. It is owned and managed by Evolution Southern Cross Limited, a partnership which combines the benefits of two of the major private hospital companies in New Zealand; Evolution Healthcare and Southern Cross Healthcare.

What we stand for

Grace Hospital is committed to providing surgical excellence and a wide range of treatment options, combined with warm, personalised and attentive care to make your experience of surgery as comfortable as possible.

Surgical excellence

Grace Hospital works only with surgeons of the highest calibre and supports them with highly trained and experienced nursing staff. We invest in leading edge technology and make it a priority to be closely aligned to the latest surgical advancements. This ensures that we continue to provide you with the best options in treatment and care.
As an example, Grace Hospital is New Zealand’s foremost centre for surgical robotics. We pioneered robotic-assisted surgery in New Zealand with the purchase of our first robot back in 2007. We’ve had a team operating with robotic assistance ever since and are proud to have reached our current high level of innovation and surgical excellence.
This is a benchmark we’re committed to maintaining, constantly lifting the bar to provide you with the best procedures and choices that medical science has to offer.

Flexible scheduling

We understand that waiting for surgery is stressful so we do our best to avoid these delays with flexible and carefully managed scheduling. We also do our utmost to work around your other commitments.

Personalised care

Whilst you’re with us, our focus is on providing personalised and attentive care to make the experience of surgery as stress-free as possible. We foster an environment of empathy and respect, in which each and every member of our team recognises the important role they play in your recovery.

It’s the little things that make a difference

Whilst no-one enjoys being in hospital, we understand that the little things can make a difference – both for you and your support people. Our modern facilities were designed for your comfort and safety, with private en-suite rooms, TV and wifi. Our gourmet meals are almost worth a stay in hospital and your family and friends can count on a warm welcome.
So whilst we do everything we can to get you back on your feet as soon as possible, we also hope you’ll leave with pleasant memories of our warmth and care.
