Kia Ora & Welcome to Mercy Hospice Auckland
Mercy Hospice Auckland provides a range of specialist community palliative care and hospice services for people facing life limiting illnesses, caring for them with the utmost professional skill, compassion and quality of service. We also offer support to family, friends and carers to help them cope with problems arising from the illness.
All our services are offered free to patients and their families, regardless of age, ethnicity, means or religion, thanks to the generosity of our community.
We support people living in the Auckland District Health Board area. This covers Auckland City and the central suburbs from Glendowie in the east to Avondale in the west, Herne Bay in the north to Otahuhu in the south. Specialist inpatient care is also provided to people from Waiheke and the islands of the Hauraki Gulf. Our services are provided 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
