Several errors were introduced during publication of the original article [1]. These errors are as follows:

  1. 1.

    Additional file 1 (Calculation of the costs of hospital-level care in residential settings in New Zealand) and the in-text citation of this file were missing.

  2. 2.

    Additional file 1 (Supplementary Tables and Figures) should be Additional file 2.

  3. 3.

    The footnote clarifying NZDep groups was missing in Table 1 and Additional file 2:

    1. a.

      NZDep was categorised as the following: 1–4, 5–7, and 8–10, where 1 represents the areas with the least deprived scores and 10 the areas with the most deprived scores.

These changes do not impact the conclusion of the article. The original article has been updated to rectify these errors. The publisher apologizes to the authors and readers for the inconvenience.
