Mediclinic Southern Africa has officially completed the renaming of Denmar Specialist Psychiatric Hospital to Mediclinic Denmar Mental Health Services. Mediclinic acquired the well-regarded private psychiatric hospital in 2019, and believes that this realignment will reinforce the understanding of the expansion of care available across the care spectrum.

The hospital was founded in 1951 and is a well-recognised private psychiatric hospital in South Africa. It offers a 170 bed private facility catering for psychiatric patients as well as theatre and day clinic facilities. Further treatment options include medication, psychotherapy and compulsory group therapy, as prescribed by the attending doctor or psychiatrist.

Mediclinic Denmar Mental Health Services will continue to operate as before, as an extension of Mediclinic’s continuum of care and we look forward to working alongside the team that are responsible for its success.

“We acknowledge that mental health remains a priority, with an increasing number of individuals experiencing the need for mental health support. Mediclinic’s vision is to expand the value we provide to our patients by increasing our exposure across our care offering, particularly within the mental health arena. Mediclinic Denmar Mental Health Services offers a key specialist service and has entrenched itself within the larger Pretoria community,” says Andre Meiring, General Manager: Mental Health for Mediclinic Southern Africa.

“Mediclinic Denmar Mental Health Services will continue to offer an important service to the community and we strongly support the need for mental health services within the South African context, most especially with the added burden that COVID-19 has placed on many communities,” explains Izaan van Coller, Hospital General Manager: Mediclinic Denmar Mental Health Services.

“The decision to rebrand is part of our expansion across the continuum, extending our well recognised brand promise and offering our patients the sense of assurance that facilities such as this will continue to provide the expertise that our patients are accustomed to,” Dr Biren Valodia, Chief Marketing Officer: Mediclinic Southern Africa.  

This expansion of the Mediclinic brand includes the recent addition of a number of Mediclinic Day Clinics and Mediclinic Renal Service facilities situated across South Africa.

Denmar Mental Health Services will remain a trusted provider of patient care where treatment is adapted to suit individual needs and is monitored by a multi-disciplinary team consisting of psychiatrists, psychologists, psychiatric nurses and occupational therapists.
