About Three Rivers Medical

Three Rivers Medical began as an initiative of the owners of Kaiti Medical Centre, which out-grew rooms in Kaiti, the eastern suburb of Gisborne, where it had been for 30 years. New Zealand’s government wants better sooner more convenient health services. We are a group of health professionals who decided to make this vision a reality; Three Rivers Medical opened in August 2012.
