Your DHB

Our Vision

Healthy, thriving communities, Kia Momoho Te Hāpori ōranga.


Our Mission

Enabling communities to achieve good health, independence and access to quality services.


Our Values

During 2011, the Board reviewed the DHB's values. The Board believe that in order for values to be demonstrated, they must be both memorable and defined.  

CARE was introduced to the Bay of Plenty District Health Board as our Values acronym, meaning Compassion, Attitude, Responsiveness and Excellence.
