Miro O Te Ora, formally named Te Ha o Kiritahi has been operating for the past 15 years as Te Kohao Health's Medical Clinic.

The new name "Miro O Te Ora" was given to us by Kiingi Tuheitia in 2009 when we moved into Te Kohao Health's multi purpose Whanau Ora - Health and Wellness Centre. 

This service gives access for family/whanau to health education and support, immunisations and health checks.

Our team of qualified Health Workers will help families to understand the value of these services and ensure that your children are registered with general practice, a Well Child/Tamariki Ora Provider, and a Dental therapist.

Strengthening Families makes life easier for families dealing with government and other agencies. It unites agencies working in social service areas like health, education and welfare to coordinate care for families facing challenges.
