Who we are

Kaweka Hospital was founded by a group of clinicians who saw the need to offer additional surgical procedures to the growing Hawke's Bay population.

Stage 1 of the facility is open and running four operating theatres, post-procedure recovery and overnight beds.

Stage 2, planned to open in December 2024 will have a 31 bed ward, specialist consulting rooms, a pharmacy and a cafe.

Kaweka Hospital is committed to serving the population of Hawke’s Bay and #MakingItBetter.
