Welcome to QE Health. You have found a world leading residential rehabilitation facility with a range of healthcare facilities.
We are open to the general public by Referral and on a Private basis.
Our core role is in providing rehabilitation services to patients with severe arthritis and other chronic disorders.We are a national referral centre for patients who are unable to manage their condition despite the best efforts of regional services.
Rotorua is a natural place for QE Health. The geothermal spas at Rotorua have been providing healing for over a century. QE Health is the direct successor to the original health spa, the Rotorua Bathhouse.
The benefits of healing from mineralised water is known as balneotherapy. Evidence shows that better outcomes in musculoskeletal conditions are experienced from balneotherapy than from non-mineralised spa treatment (Falagas et al International Journal of Clinical Practice, July 2009).
In addition, we have skilled and experienced therapists providing the following services:- physiotherapy, psychological counselling, occupational therapy, orthotics services, research along with our Spa at QE utilising Rotorua's geothermal waters.
We are also happy to announce that we now offer a pre-habilitation service. This is where patients who are covered by Southern Cross Health insurance requiring hip or knee replacement surgery, can now access our combined prehabilitation and surgical service. The surgery is offered at Rotorua's Southern Cross Hospital in Otonga Road, whilst the prehabilitation (preconditioning and preparation for surgery) and post surgical rehabilitation are offered by Rotorua's Queen Elizabeth Health.
