Health Care Centre
Achieving the Vision
In our hospital, we seek to bring the hope of Jesus as we prepare our Palliative care clients for death.
Why Do We Serve?
Created initially as an In-patient Palliative care hospice for clients with terminal illnesses, the Health Care Centre has shifted in function according to the needs of the community and is now a 22-bed Sub-Acute Hospital. The focus has expanded to include not only compassionate Palliative care, but also physical rehabilitation after a hospital stay or surgery, wound care, and respite care for patients whose caretakers may need a break from the demands of caring for a disabled or chronically ill loved one.
Who Do We Serve?
We work with patients who are referred by a clinic or hospital or identified by our Home Based Care team as requiring In-patient care.
How Do We Serve?
The Health Care Centre provides 24-hour nursing care, facilitated by an Interdisciplinary Care Team, including a medical doctor, social worker, physiotherapist, occupational therapist, chaplain, professional nurses and careers. Our Sub-Acute Hospital provides a safe, clean and nurturing environment where patients receive holistic medical treatment by trained staff. Treatment includes nutritional support, side effect management, spiritual counselling, and symptom control. We seek to positively influence our patients’ quality of life, helping them lead healthier, lives, no matter their illness.
Where Do We Serve?
The Health Care Centre is on the Capri Campus in Fish Hoek. This is the only facility of its kind in the Southern Peninsula, serving a large and diverse population in the Deep South of Cape Town.
