St John is run and staffed by people who are passionate about serving their communities and caring for fellow New Zealanders. We are a charity and have a volunteer ethos, with paid and volunteer members working side by side.
Local and global:
St John has existed in New Zealand since 1885 and is part of a global organisation known as the Order of St John, which is active in more than 40 countries. The Order of St John can trace its history back to a hospital set up in Jerusalem during the Crusades over a thousand years ago.
Enhancing health and wellbeing:
Those who work for St John are driven by the desire to help their local communities by providing essential health-related services.
Our values: integrity, teamwork, professionalism and empathy. Help guide us to achieve our vision of ‘enhanced health and well-being for all New Zealanders’.
