Health promotion and education is delivered in conjunction with the medical model of healthcare.

Wharenui A powerful symbol of manaakitanga, caring for people physically and spiritually, this is the essence of Hauora Māori. The whare also represents the Whai Oranga organisation who watch over the people and care for their wellbeing.
Koru The two koru in the centre represents the people who will be using the services and seeking help.
