One of the country’s foremost black-owned healthcare groups, Busamed, has opened the doors to its newest hospital, reports the Bedfordview Edenvale News.
The Modderfontein Private Hospital and Oncology Centre was opened on November 25.
The hospital is on the footprint of Zendai Development’s Modderfontein New City. The state-of-the-art tertiary hospital will offer comprehensive healthcare services to communities in and around Modderfontein.
The 170-bed hospital boasts some impressive facilities, including modern medical equipment and a team of trained doctors, nurses and medical staff. It offers a comprehensive cancer programme, a full spectrum of orthopaedic services and super-specialised gynaecology/fertility experts. The facility will also offer Robotic Assisted Surgery, the first of its kind in orthopaedic surgery in the country and on the continent.
The hospital is situated in Longlake, the gateway precinct of the Modderfontein New City, with immediate access to the N3 and other main routes such as the M60, as well as proximity to Sandton CBD.
The 275ha Modderfontein Reserve, the second largest private green space in Gauteng and the heart of the new city development, lies right next to the hospital. The reserve has four well-maintained cycling trails, six walking trails, a specific trail for the weekly Park Run, braai and picnic areas, and an onsite restaurant and wedding venue, Val Bonne Country Estate, attracting hundreds of visitors every week, from around the city.
Wenhui Du, CEO of Zendai Development South Africa, said the key objectives of the Modderfontein New City include creating a world-class precinct that features prime public spaces and modern infrastructures and services, so that it is a place that people can live and play.
“The masterplan also includes development of residential, commercial, light industrial, educational and leisure properties. The educational element of the development has progressed well with the extension of Modderfontein Montessori School, the opening of the Modderfontein Swimming School, as well as the establishment of Founders Hill College, which was opened in January 2016, accommodating more than 300 students from grade 0 to 12,” said Du.
