Hutt Valley DHB plan, organise and deliver services to improve, promote and protect the health of local residents, in a way that also allows us to meet national and regional population needs.
Our region covers a total land area of 916 square kilometres and includes two cities, Lower Hutt and Upper Hutt.
Of the 145,000 people in our region, 104,000 live in Lower Hutt and 41,000 live in Upper Hutt. Around 17% of the people who live here are Maori and 8% are Pacific peoples. We also have significant Asian and refugee populations.Click here

The process of planning our health services is guided by our vision, values and our strengths as an organisation. It is also guided by a set of plans and objectives. Some of these include working closely with our neighbouring DHBs, improving hospital productivity, delivering Better, Sooner, More Convenient Primary Health Care and achieving the Government's six Health Targets.
