Accommodation near Marianhill Monastery St Marys Hospital

St Mary's Hospital is unique for being the only private Catholic mission hospital in South Africa. It is situated in Marianhill, on the outskirts of Durban in the province of KwaZulu Natal. The hospital serves a community of over 1 million people, most of who live in impoverished circumstances. The hospital has a very long history of helping the poor.

St Mary's was initially established by a group of Trappist monks in 1882. The appealed to the women in their parish to help them and 5 came on board, forming the Missionary Sisters of Precious Blood - the group which still owns the hospital, although these days it is managed by a trust. In 1927 the current hospital buildings were constructed and in 1933 a training college was set up to educate nurses and midwives.

Today the 200 bed facility has an operating theatre, and is a referral hospital for 24 government clinics, and while it is registered as a non-profit organisation, a percentage of its funding comes from the government. Any money the hospital receives goes towards maintaining and improving the hospital's facilities, which currently include both outpatients and inpatients facilities.

For outpatients there is an eye-clinic, dental services and a 24 hour casualty ward, while the inpatients part of the hospital includes orthopaedics, general surgery and gynaecology as well as medical wards, a paediatric ward and maternity.

There are other services too including pastoral counselling, social workers (who include HIV/AIDS counselling as part of their offering), dietetics, radiography, x-rays, basic laboratory services and a pharmacy.
