While the coronavirus pandemic has upended life for nearly everyone, healthcare workers have had to face more risks than most. Much is owed to the men and woman who courageously showed up daily to care for others and paid the ultimate price. May your loved ones find comfort in your legacy…R.I.P

We are forever indebted to the selfless service of every healthcare worker, but more so to those colleagues who have lost their lives during this pandemic. Their ultimate sacrifice deserves our deepest gratitude and admiration.

With every patient recovery video our team has published on social media, I have seen the passion and the dedication of our staff. Each patient represents weeks, days and hours of care. We know what it takes to move patients from a position where they are fighting for their health to a place where you can rejoice as they walk out on their own. For each patient that leaves our facility, I want to thank you for what you have invested.
Mark Peach
Executive Head of Public Affairs, Hospital Association of South Africa
Each day you hold the patient’s hand in encouragement or give feedback to a concerned relative on the phone. You laugh with a patient or celebrate small victories in their recovery. You are the hands, ears and voice of the care we deliver. I would like to personally raise my hands and applaud each of you for the work you are doing. Your contribution to every patient’s recovery cannot be forgotten. Each life you have touched is a walking credit to your dedication. Thank you.
