Your New Hospice – video

We now have an exciting opportunity to build a new home for Cranford that will meet the needs of the people of Hawke’s Bay, now and in the future.

Cranford Hospice have been fortunate to receive a generous offer from the Joan Fernie Charitable Trust for a secluded rural site ‘Chesterhope’, located at Pakowhai, midway between Napier and Hastings. The established gardens – the Joan Fernie Gardens and Arboretum – provide a tranquil setting for patients and their whānau to receive the very best compassionate care and support that we’re known for. Watch this video to learn more about your new hospice.



Chesterhope October Open Day

Visit the idyllic site of your new hospice at our October Open Day. Join one of the small group tours being held throughout the day to learn about the plans for the new facility and see the beautiful setting of your new hospice.

Together, we can build a new home for Cranford in the heart of Hawke’s Bay. A place where we can support our loved ones at the end of life for generations to come.
