Our values of tohungatanga, manaakitanga, kotahitanga, and rangatiratanga guide our style of working together to pursue clinical and cultural excellence. We believe that having fun and caring for one another is essential to our mahi.  We strive to meet the needs of tangata whaiora by providing holistic services that respect, value, and include whānau beliefs, customs, language and culture.
