“Getting positive feedback from the people of the South Coast is perhaps the best indicator of whether we are achieving our service objectives, and this award is evidence that the hospital team are doing just that. We are delighted to have been recognised as the top private hospital on the South Coast.”

Netcare Margate Hospital general manager, Rob Ferreira, believes that winning an award for organisational excellence in the healthcare sector is not an easy feat.

“An award of this nature requires an on-going commitment to service excellence and professionalism at all levels and in all we do. It is an acknowledgement of our commitment to service excellence across all spheres of our service and that we are making a valuable contribution to the community and South Coast region. And while we are honoured by the award we will continue to always aim higher in providing each person who place their trust in our hands with the best and safest care,” he concludes.
