The new emergency department at Netcare Cuyler Hospital will ensure every emergency is treated in the shortest possible time, in line with international standards of care.

This facility will be fully operational as from next Tuesday, August 1st when patients will have access to a 24-hour emergency department 7 days a week.

The newly refurbished, fully upgraded emergency department will be operated by a highly experienced, independent emergency management company with a solid track record.

According to the general manager of Netcare Cuyler Hospital, Victor Mutle, Uitenhage and surrounds are home to a number of manufacturing plants, where workers are, on occasion, injured in the course of duty. The emergency department will provide both businesses and the community with added peace of mind that the best possible care will always be close at hand.

“In addition to 24-hour doctors and nurses on site, the emergency department comes with state-of-the-art technology and equipment, and new consulting rooms have been built to ensure a comfortable, world-class hospital experience,” said Mutle.

Prompted by the growing need for quality emergency care within the local community, Mutle says the new emergency department is something that has been in the pipeline for quite some time.

“Netcare Cuyler Hospital is renowned for providing outstanding patient care and has achieved national recognition in this regard. The addition of the new emergency department is something that the previous general manager had been planning for many years, in consultation with the local community and businesses. As such, it is a great honour for me to see this potentially life-saving development come to fruition on my watch.”

The new management company, ER Consulting Inc., benefits from the expertise of four emergency physicians (the highest emergency medicine qualification in South Africa) to guide their clinical governance policies and charges the lowest medical aid approved rate ensuring that quality is made affordable to medical aid patients.

“We are very excited about the many benefits the new emergency department will bring to the people of Uitenhage and Despatch. Our first priority has always been to ensure that our service offering is tailored to meet the specific needs of the community we serve, and the new emergency department means we are now able to do just that,” concludes Mutle.
