New Paarl Psychiatric Services Building

25 November 2015

The Western Cape Department of Transport and Public Works delivers infrastructure and services to the people of the province to promote positive socio-economic outcomes and safe, empowered and connected communities.

The new R35 million psychiatric services building currently under construction at the Paarl Hospital is scheduled for completion in March 2016.

This facility will provide specialised infrastructural capacity to attend to the needs of the increasing numbers of psychiatric patients coming to the hospital.

Features include a new 30-bed ward (17 beds for men, 10 for women and the remainder for specialised services), as well as day areas for living and rehabilitation, outdoor areas that include courtyards and verandas, four consulting rooms, and a number of service areas.

When it is complete, the new building will expand patient access to multi-disciplinary care at Paarl Hospital. This is another example of the commitment of the Department and its partners to providing quality infrastructure to all the people of the Western Cape.
