Located in the heart of Epsom, CHT St John's Hospital has held a special place in the community since 1962. Surrounded by gardens and courtyards, CHT St John’s provides a tranquil and peaceful sense of home for residents.

Redeveloped initially in 1999 and a second stage added in 2003, CHT St John's is a unique concept in residential care around 8 and 10 bed suites.

A specialist dementia care unit was opened in early 2016.

Quality care, compassion and a strong connection to the community is at the heart of CHT Healthcare Trust. For over 55 years we have been taking great care of older people in the Auckland, Waikato and Bay of Plenty areas. Each of our properties provides a sense of home for residents, seamless transition across levels of care and support for families.

As an independent healthcare trust, CHT focuses all energy and resources into caring for residents, their families and communities.
