Ko wai mātou
To be the centre of excellence for hospice palliative care for the Rotorua Community.
To provide hope and dignity through exemplary care to patients and their families/whanau in partnership with fellow professionals.
Rotorua Hospice acknowledges the Treaty of Waitangi as a foundation document of New Zealand. In recognising the three principles of the Treaty – partnership, protection and participation, we will deliver our services at all levels of the organisation within the spirit of the Treaty.
Whilst completely free of charge for people using Hospice services, it costs a lot to provide. As an essential health provider, Rotorua Hospice receives funding from the Government but financial support from the community is essential to meet the shortfall.
In Rotorua we receive around 50% of funding from the DHB which leaves around a $1,000,000 shortfall. We rely on the support from the community to help fundraise through a range of activities; our retail shops, donations, grants, corporate partnerships and fundraising events.
Thank you for your support!
We understand that dealing with a terminal illness is very stressful and you may have a number of questions about Hospice and the care we provide.
You may be able to find some answers here or you can speak to your Hospice care team on 07 343 6591.
