Middlemore is the largest hospital operated by Counties Manukau Health. We offer secondary-level (hospital and specialist) care and a selected range of community and domiciliary services for the population of Counties Manukau - the area that stretches from Otahuhu to Port Waikato.
We also provide niche specialist tertiary services for regional and national consumers in orthopaedic and plastic surgery, burns, spinal injury rehabilitation, renal dialysis, and neonatal intensive care.
Middlemore Hospital is one of the largest tertiary teaching hospitals in New Zealand. Annually, we admit more than 91,000 in-patients, and handle in excess of 354,000 day-patients and outpatient attendances. We employ around 4,700 staff (4,100 full time equivalents).

All Counties Manukau Health facilities are smoke free.
As we continue to respond to the threat of COVID-19, we are limiting the number of visitors for patients to two people, including one support person (eg. parent, partner) plus one visitor.
Children under the age of 15 will not be able to visit at this time. This does not affect children who already have appointments booked with one of our facilities.
If you are unwell, you must stay at home.
These restrictions apply to all hospitals and outpatient facilities.
Inpatient services are also provided at our other facilities, which include Kidz First Children's Hospital, the Manukau Surgery Centre, Pukekohe Hospital, Franklin Memorial Hospital, Botany Downs Maternity Unit and Papakura Maternity Unit as well as dedicated mental health and rehabilitation units. Outpatient services are primarily provided at Manukau SuperClinic™ and Botany SuperClinic™.
