The inpatient service is based in Wards 6a and 6b in Dunedin Public Hospital, and has 40 beds, with an allied health gym facility also located on the 6th floor.

Our service is provided by a highly skilled multi-disciplinary team of Geriatricians, Nursing, and Allied Health staf. We provide Assessment, Treatment, and Rehabilitation, with a patient goal centred focus on encouraging patients to regain and maintain maximum level of function.
