Western Cape, South Africa (11 April 2021) – The Melomed Hospital in Mitchells Plain recently celebrated the discharge of their last COVID-19 patient.

Melomed Mitchells Plain was one of the first hospitals in the country to have admitted and treated a COVID-19 patient on the 19th of April 2020, and it is now the first hospital in the Melomed group to currently have no COVID-19 patients currently admitted.

“While we are mindful of the fact that there may be more COVID-19 admissions at the hospital in future, this key milestone is one that must not go unnoticed given the arduous journey that has been overcome in recent months.”

The Melomed Group have 6 Private Hospitals, which includes 24-hour emergency centres, in-house pharmacies, renal dialysis units, cardiac units, nuclear medicine, oncology units, as well as an emergency ambulance service called Melomed 24.

“Our other Melomed Hospitals have also seen a massive decline in COVID-19 cases and should see most if not all COVID-19 patients discharged soon. While this is extremely encouraging, we are still very mindful and prepared for a potential third wave of infections that may occur.”

“We are delighted to have discharged the last Covid patient from the hospital for now. We nevertheless remind ourselves that we need to be alert and prepared at all times to ensure we offer the best service to our patients. We have faced and overcome significant challenges over the past year, and as a result of phenomenal teamwork and support by ALL.

As we continue the battle against the Covid-19 pandemic, we remain resolutely focused on the health and safety of our patients and our medical staff. It would be remiss if I did not express deep gratitude and appreciation to all stakeholders for their ongoing support,” Dr E Danso, a specialist doctor’s at Melomed Mitchells Plain Hospital, said.

Mr Ebrahim Bhorat, Chairman of Melomed, said: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank and congratulate the doctors, the staff, the patients, ALL healthcare workers, the government, the media and the general public for their bravery, commitment, their patience, understanding and dedication during these challenging times. I congratulate and salute them.”

The Melomed Team remind the public that the Hospitals are fully operational for inpatients and outpatients. Specialist doctors are available to treat all medical illnesses and procedures. They continue to provide a full spectrum of medical and clinical services to patients in a hygienic and completely safe environment.
