Paediatric services moved

2018-02-06 06:01

All Mitchell’s Plain Hospital (MPH) paediatric patients accessing the Mitchell’s Plain Hospital Emergency Centre (EC) has been temporarily relocated as from yesterday (Monday 5 February) due to construction and maintenance work scheduled to take place in the EC over the next seven to eight months.

During the first phase of construction, the Mitchell’s Plain Paediatric Emergency Centre patients will be transferred to the Mitchell’s Plain Hospital Thuthuzela Clinic on the ground floor.

Management has put systems in place to ensure a smooth transition from the EC to these temporary wards.

A strict security system has been put in place to monitor all patients. Visitors are requested to adhere to staff instructions for safety and security measures.

The hospital management requests that the community must be mindful and not misuse Emergency Services during the construction period.

Construction will take place over a period of six months, and they request that clients practice patience during this process as it is ultimately to sustain the health and safety standards of the ­patients.

The community will be informed of further patient relocation decisions during the various phases of the EC construction project.

V For further enquiries please contact the hospital on 021 377 4300.
