Fiona Michel - Chief Executive
Braemar Hospital is Waikato’s leading private hospital, located in the heart of Hamilton.
Our vision is to be ‘your choice for excellence’ – excellent facilities and equipment, excellent clinical skill, excellent care – and being an excellent employer, which is why we were the first (and currently only) hospital in New Zealand to become a Living Wage accredited employer.
According to the World Health Organisation, income is one of the key social determinants of health. Simply put, people in poverty have poorer health outcomes. We believe it’s important to put our money where our mouth is, and show our people through the process of Living Wage accreditation, that we have an ongoing commitment to their welfare – not just ‘when times are good’ - but always.
Braemar is contributing to the Principal Employer Programme to support other employers, especially health providers, to create the conditions for a strong and healthy New Zealand – starting in our own back yards.
