Waitemata District Health Board
With more than 525,000 people living in our district, Waitemata District Health Board (WDHB) has the largest – and second fastest growing – population among all district health boards in New Zealand.
We employ around 5,500 people in more than 30 different locations in thenorthern and western parts of Auckland.
Our main sites include North Shore Hospital on the shores of Lake Pupukein Takapuna and Waitakere Hospital in lush, green West Auckland.

From our various sites, we offer a wide range of services including extensive medical, surgical, acute orthopaedics, intensive care, high dependency, cardiovascular, coronary care, maternity, mental health, and community and disability services.

We are also a teaching facility, with a well-established and highly-respected research programme. This will be built upon with Health Campus, an exciting project to create an education and research network in the district. This will bring together universities, healthcare providers, local communities and other district health boards to support the training and development of health professionals.
But it's not all about work! Living in the Waitemata district – part of New Zealand's biggest city, Auckland – means a unique lifestyle that comes with living in a vibrant urban centre with beaches and open spaces just around every corner.
