About the Helensville District Health Trust

The Helensville District Health Trust is a community-owned not-for-profit organisation established in 1989.

The Trust owns and operates from its strategic health campus in the centre of Helensville.

The campus includes the purpose-built medical facilities of the Kaipara Medical Centre, the Helensville Birthing Centre, LabTests and offices for the Waitemata DHB.

The trust also owns Alison McKenzie House on the corner of Commercial Road and Porter Crescent. The building was closed in May 2016 when its foundations were found to be unsafe and plans for a major redevelopment of the site will be announced in 2018.

The Trust extended its property portfolio when it was gifted the former Parakai Tavern site in 2013. That building is now home to Te Whare Oranga ō Parakai - a community hub for wellbeing, education and events. 

The Trust made up of a number of trustees who volunteer their time, experience and expertise to the community. 

A number of staff members led by Business Manager Nicola Keen-Biggelaar also work hard to ensure the day to day operation and long-term vision of the Trust are being met. 

The Trust is recognised as a leading and successful integrated rural health model in New Zealand.

As the Helensville District Health Trust is a registered charitable trust (registration number CC29397) donations or bequests are tax deductible and can be sent to PO Box 13, Helensville, Auckland.
