New and upgraded health facilities

2016
(Western Cape Government)

The Department of Transport and Public Works is responsible for building and upgrading health facilities for the Western Cape Department of Health and boasts a picturesque portfolio of projects which include community day centres, clinics, emergency centres and hospitals.

In line with the Western Cape Government’s vision, we aim to “lead in the delivery of government infrastructure and related services”.

The Western Cape Department of Health commissions us to build or upgrade these health facilities to improve service delivery to people living in different parts of the Western Cape.

Vredenburg Hospital

Work is being done in a way that does not interrupt ongoing health service delivery. When the project is complete, the upgraded hospital will be able to accommodate 80 inpatients.
