After your Surgery

Payment before surgery

If your surgery is not covered by Insurance, ACC or a DHB contract you will be required to pay the estimated amount of the hospital costs for your surgery prior to admission.

You can make a payment by:

  1. using the secure online facility on our website to make a payment.
  2. making an online payment to the Grace Hospital account via internet banking. Our account is 03 0584 0283955 000 (Please include the patient name and surgery date on the transaction to enable us to track the payment.)
  3. credit card, details may be given over the phone or by completing the appropriate section of the admission form. Please note, we only accept Mastercard or Visa.

If your surgery is covered by insurance and you have an excess on your policy this will also need to be paid prior to surgery.

Terms and Conditions

When you get home
We strongly advise you have a capable adult with you for the first 24 hours following discharge from hospital. It's important that you rest during this time so it's helpful to have additional support.

It's normal to feel some degree of pain or discomfort after an operation - your surgeon and nurses will explain what is to be expected based on your procedure.  Please also feel free to call us if you have any queries.
Please call your surgeon or doctor immediately if you experience
  • increased pain or excessive swelling around the wound
  • nausea or vomiting
  • chest pain or breathing trouble
  • fever or chills
In the event of an emergency call an ambulance (111).
