High-level medical care in Gauteng received a significant boost with the expansion and refurbishment of the Cormed Private Hospital in Vanderbijlpark by Giflo Medical, part of leading commercial and medical property developer the Giflo Group.
The existing hospital’s capacity was doubled in size as part of an expansive upgrade which included the addition of a new operating theatre complex with a laminar flow theatre, a fully equipped ophthalmology theatre as well as a general theatre. The new theatre complex has been operational since last November. At 4 400sqm Cormed Private Hospital now also boasts 62 beds in fully upgraded medical and surgical wards, an after-hours facility, intensive-care unit and high-care facilities.
Phase 1 of the initial redevelopment project was completed in October 2020 and the full upgrade of all facilities and equipment as well as the hospital expansion was implemented while the hospital remained fully operational, throughout the continuing Covid-19 pandemic. In spite of many challenges along the way, the official opening of the newly revamped Cormed Private Hospital will take place in June 2021
Says Ivan Makkink, director of Giflo Medical, “We are very proud to have played a role in fulfilling the vision to establish Cormed Private Hospital as a significant, state-of-the-art facility where patients from the Vanderbijlpark community and beyond can come for quality health care and after care.”
Here high technology meets the superlative patient care which has always been at the heart of the Cormed ethos. This reputation, built over 30 years by the dedicated and passionate multidisciplinary team of Cormed Private Hospital, has laid a foundation of medical excellence.
The world-class upgrade of the facilities is enabling the team to rise to the increased health-care needs of the people of the Vaal Triangle, be they patients, physicians or employees, who choose Cormed Private Hospital for unparalleled patient care.
