Visiting Hours

Open visiting is between 8am - 8pm daily.

Family and friends play an important part in a patient's wellbeing and recovery and are welcome to visit between 8am-8pm daily. Outside of these hours visitors should contact the patient or the patients Nominated Support Person. We ask that you take care to ensure visitor numbers and noise levels do not impact on other patients when in a shared room. 

Family and Nominated Support Person

Patients may also have a nominated support person with them through their journey. If you are the nominated support person you may stay with the patient when it is clinically safe to do so and you will be issued a card authorising 24 hour access to the patient. As the nominated support person you will be responsible for passing on information about the patient's progress (with their permission) to the wider family/whanau.  Information about being a nominated support person is available in our "Information for inpatients and their nominated support person" brochure's that are available on each of the hospital Wards.

About Tauranga Hospital

Tauranga Hospital provides health services to the people of the Western Bay of Plenty. A secondary hospital, it provides level 4-5 services including medical, surgical, paediatrics, obstetrics, gynaecology and mental health. The hospital is also a base for a range of associated clinical support services and allied health, such as rehabilitation, speech therapy, physiotherapy, stroke and cardiac support, district nursing and drug and alcohol programmes.

There are 349 beds at Tauranga Hospital, including the Special Care Baby Unit, maternity and mental health. Approximately 224 beds are available for medical and surgical patients (including critical care and coronary care) with a further 58 for children and older people and 17 for medical day stay. Twenty four beds are designated for mental health patients and 10 for Mental Health for older people. There are 43 beds available for maternity including 12 for the special care baby unit.

Tauranga Hospital serves one of the fastest growing populations in the country and the campus has undergone significant development in recent years to allow the BOPDHB to grow health services to match. In recent years the hospital has seen the construction of a new wing, including new theatres, outpatients department and maternity unit, of extremely high quality.

In 2007, the Bay of Plenty Clinical School was set up to provide our health workforce with clinical training, facilities, resources and support for clinical trials and research projects.
