Welcome to Gisborne’s only private healthcare facility – Chelsea Hospital.  We are located in Cobden Street, in the centre of the city.

Chelsea was first established in 1927 with the goal of providing individual, quality care to the community with respect and reassurance.  These aspirations remain at the heart of what we do today at Chelsea Hospital and we are proud of our long history of service to the Gisborne community.

Chelsea offers both day and inpatient private surgical services with the highest standard of clinical care being provided by our team of dedicated nurses and support staff, who are all passionate about the provision of healthcare for the people of Gisborne.

We are supported by a team of highly skilled and dedicated surgeons and anaesthetists who all provide a highly qualified and skilled service within their specialty usually with minimal waiting times.

Our specialties include; orthopaedics, general surgery, endoscopy, bariatric (weight loss surgery), gynaecology, ophthalmology and plastics.  We also offer limited respite/convalescent care packages.

We have a strong commitment to quality, from the care delivered, through to the commitment to investment in new and up to date technology for all of our clinical areas and specialties.
