Hospice West Auckland take pride in providing a holistic, contemporary approach to specialist palliative care. The philosophy of the organisation’s integrated approach is apparent in the level of respect, fellowship, and ongoing professional development amongst our staff. Innovative practices, contribution of ideas and enthusiasm to drive meaningful development are all appreciated and recognised in our hardworking, dedicated team environment.
