Healthcare for you and your family
Tokoroa has a hospital that provides full maternity and medical services. There are healthcare centres in Putaruru and Tokoroa (South Waikato’s two largest towns).
Healthcare is more affordable in South Waikato. Doctor’s appointments are among the cheapest in New Zealand, at just $19.50 for registered patients.
Paukawa and South Waikato Pacific Islands Community Services Trust (SWPICS) provide culturally based nursing care in conjunction with the local GPs and the hospital. Transport to the hospital is available to elderly members of the community.
