At the Waikato DHB we are on an incredible journey to become the best Women’s Health Service in New Zealand. We want you to join us at this pivotal time of growth and change.

This adventure offers you the opportunity to balance a rewarding career with the great lifestyle you’ve always dreamed of.
Women's Health provides maternity, obstetric and gynaecology services to the women in the Waikato District Health Board area and is the tertiary service provider for the Midland region (external link) . We recognise the importance of working in close partnership with all health professionals locally and regionally with the aim of improving the joint care we deliver to patients.
Waikato DHB is one of New Zealand’s largest tertiary and secondary healthcare providers. We provide tertiary services to a region of 900,000 and secondary services to a local district of 375,000. We have approximately 5,500 deliveries per year in the district and 3,500 of these are at Waikato Hospital. Facilities include a seven bed delivery suite, two high dependency beds, a women’s acute assessment unit, antenatal, postnatal and gynaecological inpatient wards, a dedicated outpatients service and modern theatres. The O&G team consists of 12 consultants, 12 registrars and 8 senior house officers.
Hamilton, in the peaceful Waikato is one of the fastest growing cities in New Zealand, yet is small enough to make your commute to our lakeside hospital a joy.
Surrounded by beautiful countryside yet close enough to the beach for a day out, at Wai-kato Hospital you have all the benefits of working in a tertiary hospital but without the usual traffic problems and high house prices of other big cities.
