Gisborne/Tairawhiti Healthcare Employment

Tairawhiti is the Maori name for the Gisborne district, which encompasses an area of the east coast of New Zealand's North Island. The main Gisborne hospital managed by the Tairawhiti District Health Board provides health and disability services from above Hicks Bay in the north to the Whanauora Ranges in the south. The Gisborne district has a population of about 45,000, with about 30,000 people living in the city itself.

Gisborne experiences warm summers and mild winters and as one of the sunniest places in the country, the area became one of the first mainstays of the New Zealand wine industry back in the 1800s.

Gisborne is also the first city in the world to see the sun each day and its Maori name for the district means, 'the coast upon which the sun shines across the water'. Kaiti Beach is where the region's first Maori settlers, and later, Captain Cook and his crew landed.
