Why Choose Us

Mediclinic Panorama is a 400 bed multi-disciplinary acute care hospital situated in Panorama, Cape Town. Since opening in August 1986, the hospital has established itself as a referral hospital for the Cape Town Metropole and surrounding areas with referrals from as far as Namibia. It was the first hospital built by Mediclinic Southern Africa. Since its inception the hospital success has been due to its professional and dedicated staff, highly skilled doctors and supporting staff.

Mediclinic Panorama offers a one-stop service to its clients. The hospital continuously invests in new technology and pioneering work is regularly performed at Mediclinic Panorama. Currently the hospital is well known for its Heart, Lung and Vascular Unit and Neonatal Critical Care Unit with a busy maternity wing.

The specialists working at Mediclinic Panorama cover all disciplines, except transplant surgery and paediatric cardiac surgery. Subspecialists in many fields also practice within the hospital.

Visiting Hours

Visits from family and friends are an important part of the recovery process and Mediclinic makes every effort to accommodate visitors. Flexible visiting hours apply (09:00 - 20:00), with a resting period between 13:00-15:00, but there may be times when visitors cannot be accommodated. Please enquire at the nurses’ station to confirm if a patient is able to receive visitors. Visitors may be asked to leave the bedside when procedures are carried out in the unit; we appreciate your understanding in this regard.

We ask that visitors respect other patients in the room and restrict the number of individuals visiting to three per bed in general wards, two per bed in critical care units and one person can accompany a patient admitted for a day procedure in the Day ward.

Silent hospitals promote healing. We ask that you put your mobile on silent while on hospital premises, keep volume to a minimum and that any accompanying children are well supervised.

Specialised nursing units

The hospital has a 24 hour Emergency Centre, Endoscopy Unit, Heart-Lung and Vascular Unit, Neonatal Intensive Care, Maternity Ward and a Theatre Complex with ten general theatres, one hybrid theatre, three cardiac catheterisation laboratories and two open heart theatres. In addition to the general wards, the hospital also offers the necessary intensive and high care beds.
