Work on Limpopo’s new R4-billion academic hospital begins in earnest

Plans are afoot to deliver Limpopo’s first academic hospital that will see the province’s residents no longer having to travel to Gauteng to receive tertiary medical services.

Acting premier, Seaparo Sekoati, led the sod-turning ceremony of the Limpopo Central Academic Hospital on Webster Street in Polokwane this week.

“This is going to be a 488-bed hospital providing over 20 services. Those services, amongst others, include all disciplines of surgery, trauma, burns, oncology, gynaecology, neonatal care, paediatrics and emergency medicine.

“This state-of-the-art facility will be essential in ensuring that our citizens have access to quality healthcare services. We have been making pronouncements on this great project over the years. Today it is pleasing that the ground has been cleared and work is beginning in earnest,” said Sekoati.

Joining the ceremony was Health Minister Dr Joe Phaahla, provincial health MEC Phophi Ramathoba and Polokwane mayor John Mpe, amongst many distinguished guests. Sekoati thanked Phaahla for the technical support received from his ministry and also praised the Polokwane local municipality for making the 25 hectares of land available.
