The Elective Surgery Centre (ESC) is dedicated solely to providing elective (non-urgent) surgical procedures to patients through the Waitemata DHB area.

Opened by the Minister of Health, Hon. Tony Ryall on 11 July 2013, the purpose-built ESC is one of the most medically advanced facilities in New Zealand and contains:

  • Four operating theatres
  • A post-anaesthesia care unit (PACU)
  • A theatre sterile supply unit
  • 40 inpatient beds
  • 10 consulting rooms
  • A public cafe
  • A shorter patient journey

The ESC is designed to reduce the patient waiting times for elective surgery and ensure a more efficient service for patients. A number of resources have been developed to support the ESC patient journey including brochures and DVDs.
