The Lenmed Group has confirmed recent media reports that it is acquiring a majority stake in Howick Private Hospital on March 1 2021.
The group said it was excited to expand its footprint in KwaZulu-Natal and for the opportunity to engage and work with the local medical community to bring a compassionate and warm philosophy of health care to the Howick community.
Amil Devchand, Group CEO said, “Lenmed intends to grow and enhance the clinical service offering over time, placing our people – our patients, employees, doctors and community members – at the forefront of what we do, and importantly, guided by our vision of championing exceptional patient experience and clinical outcomes and remaining true to our roots, the communities and people we serve.”
The group said it would keep the public up to date on progress and development at the hospital.
Lenmed’s story began in 1984, when a group of doctors took it on themselves to raise funds and build a health care facility catering for the marginalised communities of Lenasia, Soweto and surrounds. Today, it manages and owns 14 hospitals in SA, Mozambique, Botswana and Ghana and prides itself on its extensive experience and success in bringing quality health care to communities.
