Welcome to Selina Sutherland Surgical Hospital

Ngā mihi o te Kirihimete me te Tau Hou - Seasons greetings for Christmas and the New Year

Selian Sutherland will be closed from midday Friday 23 December 2022 till 8 AM Monday 9 Januaray 2023.

From all of us here at Selain Sutherland Hospital wishing you a safe and happy holiday.


Due to  COVID-19 still being in the community we request all visitors wear a mask or display their mask exemption and sanitise their hands to help protect staff and our patients.

As we see an increase in COVID-19 cases nationally and here in the Wairarapa Selina Sutherland Hospital continues to align our outpatient and visitor policy with Wairarapa Hospital.

If you have an outpatient appointment for one of our specialty clinics please do come to our front door and our reception staff will greet you, and ask some basic health screening questions. For those visiting friends and whānau who are inpatients we do request that we keep the number of visitors to two at a time; exceptions are by prior arrangement with the Change Nurse Manager or senior nurse on duty.

In addition to the visitors, Kaitiaki / Partners in care can remain with those they are caring for; Kaitiaki are those who provide essential care to patients as part of their health experience. We here at Selina Sutherland Hospital see kaitiaki are an important component of people’s wellness and recovery, and hospital staff value the support kaitiaki provide for patients; this includes people providing extra support due to a disability or to assist with mobility.
