Te Whatu Ora | Te Toka Tumai Auckland

Te Toka Tumai Auckland provides health and disability services to more than half a million people living in central Auckland, regional services for Northland and greater Auckland, and specialist national services for the whole of New Zealand. Our main sites are Auckland City Hospital and Starship National Children's Hospital, located in central Auckland.

The Auckland Region

While we’re the first to admit our entire nation of Aotearoa, New Zealand is a remarkable place – we think Tamaki Makaurau, Auckland is definitely the place to be. This cultural hub is vibrant, and friendly with new experiences around every corner. You’ll have the opportunity to experience Māori and Pasifika culture, along with classic Kiwi hospitality, at a range of local events and festivals. 

Auckland is located in the North Island of New Zealand. Because of its unique geographic position living here means you can enjoy the benefits of a large city with a wide variety of cafés, restaurants and bars, excellent theatres, galleries and museums and shopping and still be close to stunning natural landscapes, beautiful beaches and nature walks. Auckland is also the largest Polynesian city in the world and the most multicultural, with over 180 different ethnic groups. All of which adds up to one big, bustling, cosmopolitan and vibrant place.
