The clinic works with employers in Highbrook Business Park and greater East Tamaki commercial areas to codesign a healthcare structure for employees and whānau. As a result, it will provide easy access to timely healthcare services that fit within people's busy lives.
From onsite vaccinations, workplace medical assessments to virtual consultations, Highbrook Medical provides professional healthcare services for all businesses and local whānau. The clinic was brought to life to initiate healthcare outreach (Te Waka Hau ora) into the workplace and provide unconditional support to all its patients. It's structured around the Māori health model of Te Whare Tapa Wha: spiritual, physical, mental, family and social well being, supported by connection to the land.
Speaking about the centre, Lucy Hall, Group Manager of Health Improvement Group, added, "People truly thrive when they are not only physically but also mentally healthy and feel able to contribute. At Highbrook Medical, we understand that thriving isn't just about traditional health measures, but feeling supported in the workplace and community. Access to quality healthcare services close to work benefits both employees and businesses. So, we provide easy access to high-quality, low-cost, integrated healthcare, accessible from or in the workplace."
