About Forté Health

Forté Health is a recently opened state-of-the-art surgical hospital in central Christchurch specialising in short stay surgery.  We work with surgeons from multiple disciplines including otorhinolaryngology, gynaecology, urology, orthopaedics, dental/maxillofacial and general specialities.

Located in the Peterborough Village area, it is within walking distance of local attractions including Victoria Street, Victoria Square, New Regent Street and Re:START.

The hospital consists of patient and surgical facilities, comprising four fully-equipped operating theatres, a 12 bed recovery area and two day lounges.  The ward stay suites are located on level one and provide 16 overnight suites.  Consulting rooms are located on the ground and first floor, along with a laboratory and radiology department.

Our building is the first in New Zealand to utilise steel PRESSS technology and features seismic dampening technology (AFS) developed and tested by the University of Canterbury.  This provides the highest level of structural strength, stability and safety possible for our patients, clinicians, staff and visitors.

We have also been awarded a Four Star Custom Design rating by the NZ Green Building Council for building design, demonstrating our respect for the environment and genuine commitment to sustainability. Our absolute focus is provision of quality and efficient services in a clean, green facility. The building has a central atrium providing natural light and a café on the ground floor to relax and take time out.
