In a major investment for the region’s healthcare sector, Midlands Medical Centre (MMC) Private Hospital has launched a new, multi-million Rand Caesarean Theatre.
Located in the heart of MMC’s, the new Theatre will welcome the city’s new-borns in a world-class facility.
“Safety and quality of our patients and babies are paramount and this unit is located just metres away from MMC’s Maternity, Nursery and Neonatal ICU Units. The flow of care is ideal for babies, mothers, doctors and nurses,” said Sister Raksha Govender, MMC’s Nursing Services Manager.
Pictured at the launch function were some of the obstetricians and anaesthetists who support MMC’s Caesarean Theatre, Maternity and Nursery Units, as well as nurses and other key staff members.
Also pictured were the first family to experience the new Theatre, Colleen Amos (Mum) and Martin Kiwanuka (Dad) with their new baby boy.
Ampath Laboratories embarked on an educational roadshow across private hospitals in KZN. The objective of the roadshow was to illustrate the flow of specimens through their lab facilities. Nursing staff and doctor’s PAs were exposed to the processes involved once a patient is bled. Ampath divisions included nursing services, pre-lab, data capturing, chemistry, haematology, microbiology, cytology and histology.
MMC Private Hospital recently hosted a well-attended IPA Doctors CPD Meeting for May 2018. Pictured are Doctors with representatives of Astra Zeneca, and Dr RN Singh from the IPA.
With traditional medicine remaining an integral part of how many locals manage their healthcare, Midlands Medical Centre (MMC) Private Hospital and the SA Academy of Family Physicians recently held a Continuous Professional Development (CPD) talk for Doctors, focussing on ethical issues at the interface between ‘orthodox’ and traditional medicine.
