Mediclinic Southern Africa recently completed the renaming of Denmar Specialist Psychiatric Hospital to Mediclinic Denmar Mental Health Services, as part of their extended focus on mental health services.

Mediclinic acquired the private psychiatric hospital in 2019 and believes that this realignment will further support their expansion of mental health services available across the care spectrum.

Founded in 1951, the hospital is a well-recognised private psychiatric hospital in the community offering 170 bed private facility catering for psychiatric patients as well as theatre and day clinic facilities.

“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 for the larger Pretoria community,” says 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. 

Mediclinic Denmar Mental Health Services continues 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 and economic challenges has placed on many communities. There are currently five dedicated mental health service facilities within Mediclinic with a footprint across South 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.

Mediclinic 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.
