Social Responsibility


WE OPERATE IN MANY DIFFERENT COMMUNITIES AROUND NEW ZEALAND AND BELIEVE IT IS IMPORTANT TO SUPPORT THOSE COMMUNITIES IN WAYS THAT HELP US FOSTER RELATIONSHIPS WITH OUR CLIENTS, OUR STAFF AND THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE AND WORK AROUND US.

In the past financial year, we have undertaken a number of sponsorships and other initiatives in support of this belief:

  • Abano, Ascot Radiology and Bay Audiology support the Westpac Rescue Helicopter with annual donations.
  • Pacific Aid has been established by Bay Audiology. Every year, ENTs and audiologists travel to the Cook Islands to provide free audiological care. Bay collects second hand and new hearing aids for distribution in the Cooks Islands, and pays for all medical travel and accommodation costs.
  • Ascot Radiology sponsored the Total Aquatic Sport swim team and donated to Jumpstart which provides the opportunity for children with cancer to do a parachute jump.
  • Abano Rehabilitation provides student training for up to eight student occupational therapists and student nurses over the year.
  • Abano Rehabilitation has provided a workplace training opportunity for a trainee intern clinical psychologist in Hamilton, offering the ability to learn, train, and work alongside staff and the facility’s senior psychologist.
  • Abano Rehabilitation also provides donations to the Brain Injury Association and associated organisations involved in brain injury.
  • Abano Rehabilitation sponsorship of a national rehabilitation conference.
  • Through the year, Orthotic Centre made donations to Lollipops, Lions and the Special Children’s Christmas Party.
  • Orthotic Centre also participates in the Work Choice day initiative and takes students from the AUT BHSC programme.
  • Abano Dental sponsors the Dental School including support for the Dental Students’ ball and prizes for annual awards.
  • A long-standing sponsorship of Olympic medallist and Halberg award-winning rower, George Bridgewater, son of an Aotea Pathology scientist Pip Bridgewater.
