About South Seas
South Seas Healthcare is Otara’s largest Pacific health provider, delivering a range of clinic, community and social services throughout South Auckland. Our vision is excellent health and well-being for Pacific people and all communities. South Seas is a member of the Alliance Health Plus PHO (Primary Health Organisation), which is New Zealand’s only Pacific-led PHO.
The organisation was founded by a group of health professionals in February 1999, following an identified need to provide Pacific Primary Health Care to the Pacific population in Counties Manukau.
Together, the founders had a broad base of experience in service delivery, policy development and clinical skills in the primary care area.
Since its beginnings, South Seas has grown to be the largest integrated Pacific provider in Otara, where more than 45% of the population identify as being of Pacific descent (2013 Census).
