News Description

DISTRICT MAIL The first phase of upgrades at Mediclinic Vergelegen are nearing completion, with the upgraded section set to be open early next month. Construction of the three storey facility started 18 months ago and forms part of an estimated R372 million investment by Mediclinic Southern Africa in the upgrade and expansion project. "The upgrades at Mediclinic Vergelegen were vital to meet the demand for greater access to quality health care by our community. These upgrades will allow us to provide quality care while ensuring the best possible patient experience." says Edmund van Wyk, Mediclinic Vergelegen operating regional chief operating officer. The new facility will have a world-class cardiac unit, a larger emergency centre, radiology department, neonatal critical care unit and more patient and parent friendly paediatric and obstetric units. The emergency centre and radiology department will move to the new facility during mid-September. Units affected by the next phase of the upgrade project will temporarily move to the current cardiac side. Second phase upgrades include the current main theatre complex, orthopaedic, surgical and general critical care units. Doctors' consulting rooms will move to the second floor of the new building. Visitors are advised to consult signage for ease of navigation. While parking remains a challenge, it will be alleviated through the provision of additional parking in future phases of the upgrades. "This is an exciting time in our hospital's history and we look forward to welcoming the community to our hospital where they can continue to experience world class health care in more spacious and modern facilities. We would like to thank our doctors, staff, patients and the community for their continued support and patience during this project," says Marquin Crotz, Mediclinic Vergelegen Hospital General Manager. Mediclinic is extending an invitation to interested members of the community to view the new facility during the open days on Friday 2 September and Saturday 3 September. To book an opportunity to do so, phone the patient experience manger Garth Smith on 021 850 6389 or send an email to garth.smith@mediclinic.co.za before Wednesday 31 August.
