Countdown Kids Hospital Appeal

Countdown Kids Hospital Appeal
We're proud to be involved in the Countdown Kids Hospital Appeal which raises funds for 11 children's hospitals and wards across New Zealand.

For two years now Waitemata DHB has been an official recipient of the annual appeal. In 2015 $125,091 was donated and $101,299 in 2016. These funds are used to buy much needed equipment for the Special Care Baby Units, maternity wards at both North Shore and Waitakere hospitals, the Rangatira Children’s Ward at Waitakere Hospital, the paediatric rehabilitation service and for use in the community by DHB public nurses.

In 2013, Countdown presented Waitemata DHB staff with an amazing gift of $37,000 as a one-off donation in the appeal. The money was put towards an EEG machine which is used to measure and assess electrical activity of the brain of newborn babies across North Shore & Waitakere hospitals.

We’re so grateful to Countdown for including us in their incredible appeal which brings together so many people to make a big impact!

Barfoot & Thompson

Barfoot & Thompson
We love having Barfoot & Thompson on board as a corporate partner helping us support Waitemata DHB to deliver the best health care possible for people living in the Waitemata area.

Barfoot & Thompson is New Zealand’s largest privately owned real estate company, still owned and run by the Barfoot and Thompson families.

With over 1,400 salespeople in 67 branches, they are experts in the real estate industry in Auckland and Northland and are passionate about giving back to their local communities.

In the first year of the partnership, the annual contribution from Barfoot & Thompson is supporting the CARE (Co-ordinated care, Assessment, Rehabilitation and Education) Project pilot that Waitemata DHB is launching this year to coordinate and enhance the care of older people living in their homes in our communities.

“It’s important to us to help those in need in our local communities. The CARE Project pilot is a special initiative and we’re pleased that our contribution will play a part in keeping older people healthy in the community and give them the best chance to stay in their own home longer. By backing the Well Foundation on this project and others we hope to contribute to the advancement of health care for people living in Waitemata.”

Barfoot & Thompson Managing Director, Peter Thompson.


We’re delighted to partner with leading health insurer, nib New Zealand, on our shared mission to help Kiwis and their families access healthcare when and where they need it.
Since January 2018, nib has contributed towards the purchase of much-needed, life-saving medical equipment - including a neonatal incubator, used to give support to newborns in need of special care in the Waitemata DHB community.
Not only that, we have partnered with nib to deliver the ‘nib check-up truck’ – through the use of our mobile dental clinic.
nib first took the truck to a series of family hotspots around Auckland in early 2018, offering free general health and dental check-ups for all ages. Over 245 free check-ups were completed across eight dates, and feedback from the community was unanimously positive.
Since then, nib has continued to take the truck direct into the community - making an ongoing, real and positive impact by encouraging Kiwis to be proactive with their wellbeing.

Ryman Healthcare

Ryman Healthcare
Ryman Healthcare has been building and operating retirement living and aged-care facilities within one village community for 35 years. At Ryman, putting residents first has always been their priority, and their terms, care and innovation are a direct reflection of this. Care is at the heart of what they do, and there is a range of retirement living options from independent and assisted living, through to the very best of rest home, hospital and dementia care. At the heart of Ryman villages are vibrant communities. Much like the neighbourhoods that residents grew up in, where neighbours had time to stop for a chat, cared for each other, and waved a friendly hello in passing. At Ryman, community shapes the heart of your retirement.
