St George’s Hospital is at the forefront of medical innovation.  It offers high quality surgical, medical and maternity care.  With 11 operating theatres, 75 surgical beds and a highly regarded maternity facility, St George’s Hospital is one of the largest private hospitals in New Zealand and one of the most modern in terms of facilities, equipment and technology.  The current redevelopment of the hospital, due to be completed in 2020, provides patients, clinicians and staff with world-class facilities that are future-proofed, modern and safe.

  • Demonstrated success within a commercial, relationship-intensive business operation.
  • Proven ability to initiate and secure growth and investment opportunities.
