Atterbury develops R350-million Mediclinic hospital in Stellenbosch
Atterbury is developing the new 15,000sqm Mediclinic hospital in Stellenbosch. This prominent R350-million development will boost the world-class medical facilities in the Winelands community.
Atterbury Western Cape Development Manager Gerrit van den Berg, says: “This is our first project for Mediclinic, and it is an exciting development for Atterbury.”
Atterbury has built its reputation as a leading property development and investment company over 22 years. It has established a national and international track record of developing, investing and managing quality properties and building long-term relationships.
Atterbury provided the new hospital with its convenient new location along the R44 Strand Road, at the corner of Elsie du Toit Drive, to better serve its community.
“As Stellenbosch is a very historic and protected town, Atterbury has taken special care to get the relevant approvals such as environmental, rezoning, and building plans,” notes van den Berg.
The modern new building is designed to meet Mediclinic’s specifications, but also includes special design features that reflect its unique location in Stellenbosch.
The eco-friendly building inspires wellness. It is designed for plentiful natural light and is water efficient thanks to a grey water system, water harvesting and drought resistant gardens which require minimal irrigation.
The construction of Mediclinic Stellenbosch began in May this year, and the new hospital is scheduled for completion in March 2019.
The new hospital will house over 100 beds and include a 24-hour emergency centre, four theatres, reception, gardens, coffee shop, and a pharmacy. Its departments will cover general surgery, medical patients, ophthalmology, urology, ICU, general theatres, radiology, day clinic facility and, in its second phase, gynaecology, maternity and paediatrics.
The existing Mediclinic in Stellenbosch, located in Die Boord, will also continue to operate and offer orthopaedic, rheumatology and day clinic services. The two Mediclinic facilities will be operated as one.
The landmark new Mediclinic hospital builds on Atterbury’s impressive portfolio of developments in the Western Cape, which has grown significantly in recent years.
