R350-million Mediclinic to rise

A new 15,000m2 private hospital in Stellenbosch is being developed at a cost of R350-million and aims to boost the world-class medical facilities available to the Winelands community.


The construction of Mediclinic Stellenbosch began in May this year and the new hospital is scheduled for completion in March 2019.


‘This is our first project for Mediclinic and it is an exciting development for Atterbury. We look forward to delivering a modern, sustainable healthcare facility that supports Mediclinic in bringing even more of the best available care to this community for years to come’, says Gerrit van den Berg, the Western Cape Development Manager for Atterbury.


The development of a bigger private hospital responds to growing demand in this community and will mean that residents of Stellenbosch and the surrounding Winelands areas will no longer need to travel long distances to access specialist medical services.


Hence, the location of the new hospital along the R44 Strand Road, at the corner of Elsie du Toit Drive, was planned by the developers to better serve the community.


Careful planning

The modern new building is designed to meet Mediclinic’s specifications, but also includes special design features that reflect its unique location in Stellenbosch.


‘As Stellenbosch is a historic and protected town, we took special care to get the relevant approvals such as environmental, rezoning, and building plans,’ notes van den Berg.


The eco-friendly building inspires wellness. It is designed for abundant natural light and is water efficient thanks to a grey water system, water harvesting and drought resistant gardens which require minimal irrigation.

Mass concrete work on the structure should be completed by the end of 2017. The new hospital will house over 100 beds and include a 24-hour emergency centre, four theatres, reception, gardens, coffee shop and a pharmacy. Its departments will cover general surgery, medical patients, ophthalmology, urology, ICU, general theatres, radiology, day clinic facility and, in its second phase, gynaecology, maternity and paediatrics.


While the existing Mediclinic in Stellenbosch, located in Die Boord, will continue to operate and offer orthopaedic, rheumatology and day clinic services, the two Mediclinic facilities will be operated as one.


Atterbury’s portfolio in Western Cape grows

The developer’s portfolio in the Western Cape has grown significantly in recent years and includes the new six-storey Citadel group office in Claremont, completed in July last year, Waterway House in the V&A Waterfront as well as other prominent buildings in Stellenbosch. Development of the massive 80ha Richmond Park in Milnerton is also underway.
