COVID-19 Alert Level Four Update

As New Zealand remains in COVID-19 Alert Level Four, Forté Health is operating under Level Four protocols. This means we are only open for any non-deferrable surgery.

If you have surgery scheduled at Forté Hospital in the week beginning 23 August, our team or your medical specialists' rooms will be in contact. Due to Level Four restrictions visitors are not allowed at Forté Hospital. We promise, however, that our expert team will do their very best to look after you.

The Ministry of Health has a list of all locations of interest relating to this latest COVID outbreak. To see that list click here.

Forté Health has additional screening and testing procedures in place and will continue to follow all Ministry of Health and Canterbury DHB COVID guidelines. We will keep this page updated with any relevant information.

If you have any questions please discuss this directly with your medical specialist or phone the Forté Hospital team on 03 365 8333 (during business hours) or email

We appreciate your support and cooperation to keep our community COVID-free.
