New state-of-the art facility for outpatients

Stellenbosch Hospital officially opened its R37,8 million upgraded emergency centre and outpatient department (OPD) on Thursday 1 March.

These new developments will bring much relief to the large community, which relies on the hospital for quality health care.

This infrastructure project owes itself to the commitment of the department to improve infrastructure, particularly to Emergency Centre facilities.

The Western Cape Minister of Health, Dr Nomafrench Mbombo, stated in her speech: “It is important for us as government to ensure that the healthcare package offered in our facility suits the needs of our communities.

“We constantly have to expand our services in direct response to the community’s needs, and that is why we pride ourselves in what we offer our patients. We continuously strive to offer the best services to all our clients in the best possible facilities.”

Started in April 2016, this infrastructure project at Stellenbosch Hospital reached practical completion on 11 December 2017 and the new area was fully operationalised on 1 February this year.

The entrance to the Hospital has been shifted back from Soeteweide Street to Merriman Avenue, with improved aesthetics at the front of the hospital.

Other improvements to the infrastructure also include a new electricity and water reticulation system as well as an upgraded public announcement system, fire alarm and patient call system.

Some of the benefits to patients and staff are improved patient flow, a dedicated area for triage, improved resuscitation and treatment areas in the Emergency Centre and OPD, improved facilities for staff, a Clinical Forensic Medicine Unit and an increase in waiting areas.
