Andrew MacDiarmid

Andrew was a general Orthopaedic Surgeon with more than 25 years´ experience in the Bay of Plenty, with a particular interest in joint replacements and arthroscopic surgery.

He had a long interest in outreach surgery in the South Pacific and dedicated part of his year to assisting orthopaedic services in this region.


We were very saddened to hear of the untimely passing of our dear colleague and friend Dr Andy MacDiarmid.

Andy was one of the founding fathers of our company, and his vision and support helped to build Grace Hospital.

He will be greatly missed by the Grace Hospital staff, many whom have worked with him for many years.

We will also sadly miss Andy's quirky ways, he was a truly kind and caring person, and that showed in his compassion for his patients and the staff he worked with across the whole organisation.

Our kindest wishes go out to all who will miss this remarkable man.  He will not be forgotten.
