Braemar Hospital is one of the largest private hospitals in New Zealand and has more than 200 Credentialed Specialists, covering a broad range of major surgical specialties. We are 100% owned by the Braemar Charitable Trust which works to further improve health outcomes in the Waikato region.

Our hospital offers a full range of facilities, 11 operating theatres, including two endoscopy suites, and state-of-the-art equipment designed to provide your patients with the most appropriate level of care. A Special Care Unit (ICU/HDU) and a purpose-built day area enables us to support both routine and complex procedures. Find out more about Braemar specialists here and some of our services and leading equipment here.

We hold certification under the Health and Disability Sector (Safety) Act for a full three-year period and the AS/NZS ISO 9001:2015 certification.

Any patient who has health insurance or is self-funding their procedure can be referred to Braemar Hospital. Patients may ask for a referral so they can have their procedure at Braemar; GPs can simply refer them to a surgeon who is credentialed to work at Braemar Hospital. You can see our specialists here. Many of these specialists also contribute to the Trust’s charitable work.

At Braemar we accept all patients – regardless of which insurance company they may belong to, or indeed, regardless of whether they have insurance cover or not. Read more on our insurance page for GPs.

Patient survey results continue at our traditionally high rates with more than 99% rating our service as ‘Excellent’ or ‘Above Average’. We are all about making lives better and we deliver surgical excellence and high-quality care in hotel-like surroundings. See more here.
