Dunstan Hospital

Dunstan Hospital has been operating in Central Otago since 1863. The modern, purpose built facility was extensively refurbished in 2005.

 

The Dunstan Hospital facility includes a 24 acute bed inpatient ward (including a three bed High Dependency Unit) and provides secondary health services to around 25,000 people living in the wider Central Otago and Wanaka regions.
