Clutha Health First is a community owned integrated Hospital and Health Centre based in Balclutha, 60 minutes south of Dunedin in the South Island of New Zealand. The Clutha District with a population of 17,000 is served by Clutha Health First, the only acute hospital in Balclutha.
The Health Centre incorporates the Hospital as well as a large General Practice Group. We are located in the middle of town and a large Rest Home is located next door.
Within our facility there are 15 Inpatient beds which provide a wide variety of acute medical, stabilisation, resuscitation and rehabilitation services, together with a specialised palliative care/family room.
We also have a wide range of Community Services, an Outpatient Department and a primary Maternity Centre.
Emergency cases are handled via the General Practitioners with support of the hospital based Medical Officers. Specialists from Dunedin Hospital visit regularly, minimising the need for patients to travel to Dunedin for some services. In the outlying areas Lawrence, Milton, Owaka and Tapanui have resident doctors and medical centres which service their communities.
With approximately 100 staff in the Clutha Health First facility, we can offer a wide variety of roles within a friendly team environment.
