Hospital Facilities

After extensive consultation, Grace Hospital was designed, constructed and opened in 2007. This purpose built facility initially provided 5 operating theatres, 48 inpatient beds, a two bed HDU, and a procedure room for endoscopy. By 2009 the sixth theatre was opened to cater for the increasing number of patients requiring surgery.

In 2009, Bay Radiology who had plain film imaging facilities on site requested an extension to their rooms for CT and MRI scanning.  This development took place and the enlarged facility opened in 2010. The MRI installed in 2010 was replaced in 2015 with a newer technology model to provide better imaging.

When Grace Hospital opened in 2007, Tauranga Anaesthetic Group became tenants of the consultancy suite on site with the facility being used for pre-op anaesthetic assessments.

In 2014 a dedicated day stay facility was opened to meet the increasing demand for day stay procedures. The Oropi centre has two procedure rooms, one for minor surgery and the other specifically for endoscopy. In 2021, an additional endoscopy room was opened to cater for the demand for colonoscopy and gastroscopy procedures.

The first floor of the Oropi centre has a consulting suite – The Tauranga Anaesthetic group provide pre-anaesthetic consultations and a chronic pain clinic from their rooms.

Also on the first floor is an education centre for Grace Hospital staff. The large modern training room is also available for hire for medical education.  Contact for more information if you are interested in room hire.

In 2020 a 7th operating theatre was opened, and in 2022, two more theatres, so now totalling 9 operating theatres on campus.

In response to the growing demand for elective surgery and procedures, there is a campus development programme underway to provide more capacity for the support services and for additional theatres as they are required. The management team thanks you for your patience as construction continues around the campus.
