Oxford Hospital is about 45 minutes drive-time from Christchurch. The hospital has 15 beds, providing a variety of health services for the Oxford community and surrounding districts including four beds for convalescing post surgery, acute admissions and palliative care; and eight beds for people who require long-stay care with permanent hospital level care. There are also three beds for short term hospital level relief care for people whose family or care givers need a break.
