About Us

Our Facility

Waihi Lifecare, formally known as Waihi Hospital is a historic and much loved icon of the Waihi Township.  For the last 5 years it has been under the ownership of the Wallace and Spreadborough-Watson families.

The dynamic and experienced partnership is very passionate about the history of this iconic building. Helen in particular has an emotional attachment with three generations of relatives being born in the maternity annex and her grandparents having spent their final days there.

Waihi Lifecare provides 24- hour care for those who can no longer manage safely in their own home, providing hospital services, rest home, respite and palliative care. Still present since its addition in 1940, is the Maternity Annex and surrounding the main buildings are 25 gorgeous cottages for independent living.

Together the partnership, along with their team of staff, look forward to developing Waihi Hospital and bringing this beautiful historic landmark building back to life. The aim is to grow it into one of New Zealand’s most respected boutique facilities that will be a pleasure to live and work in.

We welcome tours of the facility and look forward to showing you or your loved ones through. To avoid disappointment please contact us to book.
