Lenmed Howick Private Hospital revitalized to deliver enhanced healthcare
October 2023 – With an unwavering commitment to creating healthier and prosperous communities, the Lenmed Group has ushered in a new era of exceptional healthcare services for the people in Howick, a town located in the UMngeni Local Municipality of KwaZulu-Natal.
Since taking over and managing the hospital in 2020, Lenmed Howick Private Hospital has adopted several significant improvements to positively impact members of the community. In the three years of this journey, this transformation’s success has affected patient outcomes and the overall reputation of the hospital.
Some of the key achievements and enhancements include the reopening of the surgical and high- care units which are essential for patient care and to ensure that there is sufficient availability for patient admissions. A critical component to further Lenmed’s vision of creating healthier and prosperous communities is having highly skilled and experienced medical professionals onsite. Patients do not have to worry about travelling out of town to access the services of and consult with a paediatrician, an ENT (ear, nose, and throat) specialist, a physician, and a surgeon. In addition to this, patients can visit the sessional rooms to consult with a gynaecologist, a dermatologist and a clinical psychologist.
Noting the commitment to excellence and ensuring that patients receive the highest level of care and attention throughout their journey, Hospital Manager, Inga Vermeulen says:
“These improvements were really undertaken with the people of Howick and surrounds in mind. We looked at what needs to be done to cater for the diverse healthcare needs of the community and gradually worked on solutions that highlight the difference we would like to make by providing necessary and quality healthcare.”
“In the three years of managing the hospital as Lenmed, we are proud of the strides made and continuous efforts made to address the community’s healthcare needs. In addition to the various updates, we now proudly boast a 24-hour administration department, we have modified our emergency department model to ensure there is always a doctor on site to tend to our patients.”
