Hauora Hokianga Services
The Hokianga model of healthcare has its foundation in what was known as the Hokianga Special Medical Area (1941-1993) which was developed under the visionary leadership of the legendary Dr George McCall Smith.
Comprehensive healthcare services are provided at Rawene Hospital / Urgent Care Service and ten community clinics located throughout the remote rural communities of Hokianga by an integrated multi-disciplinary team of health practitioners and support staff.
Rawene (or Hokianga) Hospital is one of Northland's Public Hospital services funded by and provided in conjunction with Northland District Health Board.
Generalist community health nurses cover the full range of nursing services in close association with general practitioners who also cover the medical management of the Hokianga / Rawene Hospital under the Rural Hospital Medicine scope of practice.
Enhanced primary care and disability support services are woven together to create a seamless and efficient model where the needs of patients, whanau, and community are at the centre of care and where barriers to access, such as cost and distance are minimised.
Each component of the integrated service encourages, shares, and supports well-being through self, whanau, and community knowledge and practice, including Rongoā Maori as the primary focus.
All of the services, including general practice clinics, are provided at no cost at the point of care for enrolled patients.
Hauora Hokianga offers the following broad categories of service:
|Inpatient Hospital Services|
|Primary Care Services|
|Disability Support Services|
|Mental Health Services|
|Rongoā Maori, Community Development, Public Health, and Health Promotion|
Primary health care services are provided in association with Mahitahi Hauora PHO and the hospital, community, maternity, disability support, public health, mental health and oral health services in association with Northland District Health Board (DHB).Mahitahi Hauora » Northland DHB »
