The 24-hr emergency centre is constantly manned by highly-qualified trauma personnel, including a doctor. Patients have access to all hospital facilities and associated specialists. Seriously-ill patients will be treated immediately.
The endoscopy unit, home of the gastroenterology unit, offers two endoscopy theatres served by gastroenterologists, physicians, general surgeons and highly qualified nursing personnel. The facility is also used by paediatric surgeons and pulmonologists for bronchoscopies.
The unit is equipped with the latest video-endoscopic technology for mainly diagnostic procedures such as the evaluation of heartburn and stomach ulcers, and for therapeutic procedures, such as the removal of gallstones.
The unit also has facilities for gastroscopy, colonoscopy and bronchoscopy.
The Heart Unit has two specialised open-heart operating theatres and two heart catheterisation laboratories.
At the heart catheterisation laboratories a variety of procedures, ranging from simple diagnostic to more complicated interventional procedures, are performed. Approximately 20% of all the heart catheterisations are referred for open-heart surgery and the cardiothoracic surgeons perform heart bypass, valve replacements and lung operations daily.
The uniquely designed four-bed units offer privacy for patients and are conveniently close to the nursing stations, ensuring effective monitoring and care.
A structured patient rehabilitation programme is also presented by the unit.
Neonatal intensive care unit
Highly specialised and dedicated medical and nursing personnel play an essential role in the treatment and constant care of premature babies. The unit sets no lower weight limit - the smallest baby born here, who was successfully discharged, weighed a mere 410 g at birth!
The unit offers high and intensive care beds, of which two are in special isolation units, and is equipped with a high-frequency oscillator ventilator, used for treating premature babies with as little damage to the lungs as possible. Nitricoxide therapy is also available for critical-care patients.
The unit promotes and utilises kangaroo nurturing, in which the mother holds her baby under her clothes and close to her body to promote parent-child bonding.
This unit not only had the first radiation oncology facility in the country, but was also the first to perform certain advanced procedures, including intravascular and prostate brachytherapy treatment, and is the largest and busiest unit in the Gouws and Partners group.
