R3bn Dr Pixley Ka Isaka Seme Memorial Hospital nearly complete

Enza Construction is nearing completion of the R3bn Dr Pixley Ka Isaka Seme Memorial Hospital in KwaMashu. The hospital, named in honour of Dr Pixley Ka Isaka Seme who was one of the first black lawyers in South Africa and a founding member of the African National Congress (ANC), is scheduled to open its doors by December 2019.

“Dr Pixley Ka Isaka Seme Memorial Hospital is the largest hospital currently in development in South Africa and once completed will also be amongst the largest public healthcare facilities in the country,” said Clinton Crowie, executive director of Enza Construction.

The development of the 500-bed regional hospital forms part of the KwaZulu-Natal Department of Health Hospital Revitalisation Programme, a project that is instrumental to a broader national programme aimed at providing much-needed health facilities throughout South Africa, and will provide 1.5 million people living in KwaMashu, Inanda, Ntuzuma and surrounding communities in the northern Durban catchment area with a full spectrum of medical services.

Alleviating pressure on district hospitals

Located near Bridge City Mall, a new mixed-use precinct that serves as a business, commercial and transportation hub for the eThekwini Municipality, the hospital will alleviate pressure on the over-burdened Mahatma Gandhi Memorial and Addington Hospitals, enabling them to revert back to providing district hospital services.

“We are extremely proud to have been involved in the development and construction of the hospital, particularly since it is a facility that will also create much-needed new employment opportunities in the area,” said Crowie.

Construction of the hospital included 42,000m² of concrete, 136,000m² formwork, including post tension, coffer and flat slabs, 5,300 tonnes reinforcement, and 35,000m² of vinyl laid on 2mm self-levelling screed. The facility also includes a special rain harvesting system aimed at reducing the use of drinking water for ablution and irrigation requirements.
