Ko wai hoki / About us
Whakarongorau Aotearoa has the privilege of running free to the public, virtual health, mental health, and social services for the people of Aotearoa.
Our 12 clinical teams and support services are based across contact centres in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, and from their homes across Aotearoa.
We want to give everyone in Aotearoa the opportunity for wellness. We focus on the connected world of digital care, where we can help join all the dots, and select the right services, advice, support and help for the right need.
Through our 30+ services we connected with over 2.7 million individual people last year (to 30 June 2022.)
We use our healthy imagination to solve big problems by understanding the tiny ways that people are blocked from getting the care they deserve. Our imagination comes from our people and our partners and their drive to never give up.
Ō tātou uara / Our values
Our values underpin all we do, and how we do it. We are looking for people who align naturally with these values and will champion them:
To tatou tikanga / Our culture
Our staff are passionate people, each driven to contribute to better health outcomes, with a focus on high priority populations. We are focused on hiring kaimahi who live and work in the communities they serve.
Whakarongorau Aotearoa’s commitment to understanding and improving mana taurite (equal status) starts with the understanding of self and how we, as health professionals, think and behave each minute of each day to serve the health needs for Aotearoa.
To ensure we are as connected and as engaged as we can be with the people we help, nearly 20% of our workforce identify as Māori and 22% as Pasifika.
