Novel coronavirus (COVID-19)

Both Tauranga and Whakatāne Hospitals have processes and systems in place to respond to people who present to hospital who may have been exposed to COVID -19. This is to protect both patients and staff, should someone with COVID-19 require hospitalisation.

At the BOPDHB, our priority is ensuring that we provide care which keeps everyone safe - patients, families and staff alike.
