Mitchells Plain Hospital
The new Mitchells Plain Hospital is located in a high value conservation area, surrounded by five hectares of Cape fauna and flora. The Department of Transport and Public Works constructed the hospital using environmentally friendly and sustainable materials and the building is orientated to maximise site views and natural sunlight.
The hospital uses time switches and movement and daylight sensors to avoid unnecessary burning of lights and the design approach enhances the healing process.

- 20 Overnight beds.
