New lease on life for hospital

The Ernest Oppenheimer Hospital, once touted as the largest hospital in the southern hemisphere, has been saved.

Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited (Harmony) has sold the complex to RH Capital Managers, who will continue to provide much-needed medical services.

The handover function held today at the hospital was attended by Nkosinjani Speelman, executive mayor of Matjhabeng, Dr Nkateko Munisi, chairman of RH Capital Managers, and Peter Steenkamp, chief executive officer of Harmony.

The conclusion of this transac­tion that the hospital will remain open for years to come and continue to serve the needs of the communities of Matjhabeng and the surrounding areas.

Steenkamp said the hospital, an outstanding healthcare facility, has served the mining industry in the Free State and broader communities for well over half a century.

“I am sure that it will continue to do so for another half century or more. We at Harmony are particularly proud of the part we have been privileged to play in the hospital’s development.

“We are confident that in transferring ownership and management to RH Capital Managers, who are well placed to operate a medical facility, the people of Matjhabeng and its surroundings will continue to be served.”

Munisi said his group is honoured to now be responsible for this renowned hospital.

“We are committed to maintaining the high standards of healthcare the hospital is known for and to serving the people in the communities in and around Matjhabeng.”
