Abano Healthcare Group is a New Zealand owned company listed on the New Zealand Stock Exchange. It is the largest private specialist medical and healthcare organisation in the country. The business was established in its current form in 1999 and since that time, has progressively evolved to be a multi-discipline group with services in Audiology, Dental, Diagnostics and Rehabilitation. These clinical networks extend across a range of residential, medical and community facilities throughout New Zealand and Australia, offering high quality healthcare and medical services to nearly 1 million people every year.

"Our strategy is to focus on the private revenue segment of the healthcare and medical services market and to continue to develop new and existing sectors where the Group can add value to its businesses, medical practices and shareholders."


With our extensive experience in managing and operating healthcare and medical services businesses, we are able to add value to the businesses we own and in which we invest.


We are focused on growth – through both acquisition and the organic development and expansion of healthcare and medical practices – focusing on private revenue opportunities.


Our investment model is to concentrate on carefully selected and specific groups of healthcare sectors, where we work in partnership with the clinical founders and entrepreneurs who have made their specialty area into a financial success. We then provide resources to enable each business to realise its full potential.


We value knowledge and clinical excellence above all else and we invest in our people through continuous and appropriate training and career development opportunities. Abano businesses benefit from both internal synergies and the cross-fertilisation of knowledge across the Group.


People are the foundation of our businesses, and we are focused on turning our people’s vision into reality through close relationships with our clinical teams of highly talented and professional people. We seek to recruit and retain the best clinical and support staff to lead our services and ensure that they see Abano as an attractive, rewarding and professional place in which to develop their careers.


Better care and treatment is provided for our customers through our investment in first class technologies, facilities and leading edge equipment and our support for safe innovation. All our clinical investment decisions are initiated, guided and implemented through our clinical partners to ensure these investments are appropriate and enhance the quality of care we offer to our clients and patients.


Our financial focus is to maximise the long term, sustainable return on investment in each business, ensuring that our investments generate returns that are above our weighted cost of capital, creating shareholder wealth.


All business and operations at Abano are conducted in line with core values and guiding principles that we feel are important, both at a corporate and societal level.

  • We work for the benefit of our shareholders and aim to generate attractive, sustainable long-term returns on their behalf.
  • All our clients and patients will be treated with respect and provided with exemplary care and professional treatment.
  • Our people are our most important asset – we aim to provide our staff with secure and rewarding long-term employment in an environment where excellence is encouraged.
  • Innovation and the search for and sharing of knowledge are encouraged for all staff.
  • Through sound management, strategic understanding of healthcare needs and in line with Government health policies, we aim to improve and add value to healthcare and medical services in locations where we provide our services.
