PORT Shepstone Regional Hospital recently appointed new board members. Hospital spokesperson Phumza Morai said they hope the new members’ involvement will take the hospital to a new level.

“As the hospital’s vision is to provide an efficient, effective and compassionate regional health-care service we hope that with the new members the hospital will be taken to a whole new level.”

She said the new members’ responsibilities will be the overall governance of the hospital.

“The board is compromised of volunteers with good standing from the Ugu community,” she said.

Board members contribute in setting the hospital’s strategic priorities and ensure that goals are met.

“Board members assess the quality of care provided and ensure financial resources are managed appropriately,” said Morai­.

Port Shepstone Hospital management welcomed the new members and thanked them for their commitment to quality health care and for giving up their time to serve the board.

Phumlani Mzobe, a Hibiscus Coast Municipality­ Youth office manager, was elected deputy chair of the board and said he is happy to be part of the hospital board.

“Growing up as a young boy was challenging, so I have always had the passion and drive to be part of initiatives aimed at giving back to my community, a community that has built me, contributed to my growth and warmly supported the various projects I’ve been involved with over the years,” said Mzobe.

Mzobe said being a board member of a public hospital is a great honour as now he feels he has to fulfil a bigger noble activity in shaping a public health system that is responsive to peoples’ needs.

“This enables me to be exposed to leadership and governance of a public institution as I will be interacting with stakeholders, some from private sector,” he said.
