LEAD is proud to have equipped the brand new Mediclinic facility in Stellenbosch as well as the newly refurbished Mediclinic Vergelegen with state-of-the-art laundries.
Mediclinic Vergelegen now offers new family-and-child-centred obstetric, paediatric and neonatal critical care units, ensuring a safe environment for recovery for mothers and babies. From the new pharmacy, restaurant area, orthopaedic, surgical and general critical care units, the recent improvements contribute to an aesthetically pleasing and efficient space. 80% of the hospital beds were upgraded and an entirely new triple-storey building which houses an improved cardiac unit, radiology department, paediatric unit, neo-natal critical care unit and doctors’ consulting rooms, built.
Naturally the large-scale refurbishment required a laundry-experience that matched it’s advanced ultra-modern offering, and we provided just that!
Mediclinic Stellenbosch opened it’s doors on the 1 June 2019. The newly built hospital initially offers 95 beds with the capacity to expand to 160 beds. There are three theatres (with capacity to expand to five in the future), and eight different units within the hospital. A level one 24-hour Emergency Centre provides emergency treatment to residents while a critical and high care unit, surgical and medical units support patients with world-class expertise and care. As the period of construction of Mediclinic Stellenbosch coincided with a dramatic drought in the Western Cape, the Mediclinic infrastructure team sought to support conservation efforts by including a number of water wise elements both in construction as well as through ongoing day-to-day operations of the hospital.
LEAD was able to equip both Mediclinic laundries with efficient, innovative and durable equipment from the world’s leading manufacturers. Equipment that is proven both internationally and locally and designed with the most advanced technologies available today. The installation, comissioning and staff training were all undertaken on time and to the highest international standards.
