Our Whānau Health Centres provide a wide variety of services to our community from traditional GP clinics through to education, wellness care, mental health services, whānau support, home-based support services, health promotion and public health services.
“Hauraki as a healthy nation.”
“To continually strive for excellence in the way we provide our services to our people and in the way we involve our people.”
We ensure we always work together as a whanau and in doing so create a sense of unity.
We uplift the mana of those who we work with.
We stand together as one whānau, one organisation, one community.
Ngā puke ki Hauraki, ka tārehua
E mihi ana ki te whenua
E tangi ana ki te tangata.
Ko Moehau ki waho
Ko Te Aroha ki uta
Ko Tīkapa te moana
Ko Hauraki te whenua
Ko Marutūahu te tangata.
In the early 1990s the health landscape in Aotearoa underwent significant reform, a process which offered the Hauraki Māori Trust Board the opportunity to develop an iwi-based health care service to provide for their local community.
Centred on the unique health needs of the people of this region, the service would place Hauraki whānau and Kaupapa Māori approaches at its core.
The Board established Te Korowai Hauora o Hauraki after undertaking a thorough health needs assessment of the Hauraki rohe.
Te Korowai Hauora o Hauraki is proud of its staff.
Covering clinical, mental health, public health and Kaumātua services, our team members are chosen for their knowledge and skill and their dedication in working towards making the Hauraki a healthier nation.

Throughout my career I have worked in primary and secondary healthcare settings as well as corporate environments, gaining a wide range of experience and skills. I joined Te Korowai Hauora o Hauraki in 2014 and, during my tenure, have held a number of roles. In July 2022 I moved from a dual management role into my current role of Poukura Tāngata, managing our People and Performance services.
I feel extremely privileged to be working in a kaupapa Māori organisation supporting our Hauraki whānau.

My journey with Te Korowai first began back in 2002 when I was employed as a Kaiawhina in Whitianga and Coromandel. With Te Korowai’s encouragement and support I then went on to train as a registered nurse, which I completed in 2009. Since then, I have worked as a rural primary health care nurse in Whitianga, before returning home to Te Korowai as the mobile nurse. I was then seconded to Nurse Lead and subsequently to Poukura Hauora Clinical Services Manager. My passion is people and working alongside them and their whānau to achieve their health and wellness goals and maintain oranga.

Ki nga kākahi whakairoiro o uta, Kai nga kake pīngao o tai
Tēnā koutou, tēnā tātou, Mauri ora kia tātou katoa
