The Board has three strategic objectives that we are committed to achieving over the next five years:

  • New Whare – Our service provision is spread over three sites. There is desire to secure new premises to meet the needs of patients, clinical and community teams and our administration staff. A Building Committee was established to explore options with potential funders, land developers and others.
  • Build the business – We must have clear goals to build the business to meet the health and social service needs for our community.
  • Iwi Relationships – We are committed to working alongside mana whenua in the region by engaging in joint activities and services to support whānau living within the traditional lands of Te Ātiawa ki Whakarongotai.
