Mobile Health is a privately owned company that works in partnership with the Ministry of Health, District Health Boards and other health providers to deliver low risk elective day surgery to rural New Zealanders. In addition to providing easily accessible surgical services we provide quality continuing education to rural health professionals via a high speed telepresence network.
We believe that strong community partnerships are the key to success. Rather than replace existing health services, we act as a catalyst for communities and rural health professionals to develop better rural health systems.
The service has been operating since February 2002 and since then we have treated close to 24,000 patients in rural New Zealand, and delivered over 50,000 hours of education.
