Cape Town, South Africa
On 5 December 2016, Netcare Christiaan Barnard Memorial Hospital entered an exciting new phase in its long history, when it relocated from the premises it occupied in the city centre since 1983 to brand new premises on the foreshore, adjacent to the Cape Town International Conference Centre.
The16-storey, purpose designed hospital offers a full range of medical disciplines, many of them highly specialised, to local, national and international patients. It incorporates, among other, 11 theatres, two cardiac catheterisation laboratories, with 61 of its 248 beds being intensive and high care beds for adults, children and neonates.
The hospital is a living tribute to its namesake, Professor Christiaan Barnard, who performed the world’s first heart transplant in 1967. His legacy is carried forward by world class specialists practising at the hospital, who continue to achieve ‘firsts’ in medical advancements and to harness cutting-edge medical technology.
Hutz Medical supplied Bedhead Service Systems, Theater Panels and Pendants to Christiaan Barnard Memorial Hospital, in the form of HU10, HU21-560mm, HU23, HU12, HU8 and HU8-FSP units.
“Cape Town’s residents are blessed with a brand new state-of-the-art hospital! It has been a pleasure working on the project and watching what was once just a mass of concrete and steel come to life, to become a fully functional hospital that is ready to serve its community,” commented Keith Nagel, Hutz Medical: Regional Sales Manager – Western Cape.
Hutz Medical is proud to be associated with the following companies during the completion of the project:
Brink Stokes Mkhize Architects (Pierre Myburgh) and BVA Architects
