Accommodation near Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Hospital

The Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Hospital is a public hospital in the north of Durban, which is managed by the KwaZulu Natal provincial health department. The hospital is named after Gandhi, the great Indian freedom fighter who spent much of his life in Durban. The hospital aims to provide an integrated, sustainable, co-ordinated and comprehensive service to its patients.

The multidisciplinary hospital was built in 1995, and opened its doors to the public in 1997. Since then it has expanded to the 350 bed hospital it is today, and begun to operate as both a district hospital and regional hospital, depending on the care required. For example, disciplines like internal medicine, obstetrics & gynaecology, paediatrics and neonatology are provided at a regional level, while surgery, orthopaedics, the crisis centre and general out-patients services are rendered at a district level.

Apart from specific medical disciplines, the hospital also offers certain medical facilities which are vital to effective patient care, while others contribute to a more holistic treatment plan. Some of the facilities offered by the hospital are social work services including a crisis centre and HIV/AIDS counselling, laboratory service, inpatients wards, physiotherapy, an intensive care unit, x-ray facilities, dietetics, family planning and a 24 hour casualty ward.

The hospital is situated in the far north of Durban, inland from (or to the west of) Umhlanga Ridge. It serves a largely poor community of patients, with its catchment area for the district covering Phoenix (where the hospital is situated), Inanda, Amaoti, Mount Edgecomb and Duffs Road, and its regional catchment area reaching as far as KwaMashu, Tongaat, Verulam and Ndwedwe.
