2017-10-04 06:02

Lenmed’s 11th hospital addition to its group of private hospitals proudly opened its doors to the community of Kimberley and broad surrounds earlier in July 2017.

Hospital manager Hector Mackay confirms that the Lenmed Royal Hospital and Heart Centre has managed well since welcoming its first patient, with several theatre cases already completed.

“My team and I are committed to ensure that the patient experience at the hospital exceeds expectations,” he said.

Mackay boasts many years of experience in the health care industry with tenure as CEO of the hospitals division of a prominent local hospital group, together with international industry experience.

Joining him in the management team is Kimberley local Lana Erasmus in the position of nursing services manager who will continue to support Mackay in forging a success in the running of the hospital to provide exceptional patient care to the public.

Erasmus brings with her extensive experience as an intensive care and casualty unit manager.

The carefully planned state of the art facility provides general care to the public with its array of medical specialists in the fields of maternity, paediatrics, medical, surgical, intensive care and neonatal intensive care.

The facility will also offer procedures through a multitude of theatres, provide 24 hour emergency and outpatient care, as well as deliver supported outsourced services such as radiology, nuclear medicine, pathology and dialysis.

The oncology and cardiac units are set to open in November 2017.

The Lenmed Group has over 33 years’ experience in managing and owning private health care facilities in Southern Africa.

Lenmed currently manages nine hospitals in South Africa, one in Mozambique and one in Botswana.

The group looks forward to extending its unique brand of patient-focused health care to the Kimberley communities and the province.
