A modern specialist private hospital

Midlands Specialist Private Hospital was founded in February 1988 on the principle of creating a healthcare facility for the greater Pietermaritzburg community.

As part of the evolution of healthcare both locally and globally, we embarked on an expansion project to ensure our community and patients have a world-class facility. This has culminated in the Midlands Specialist Private Hospital, situated in the CBD of Pietermaritzburg.

Today the hospital comprises 274 beds spread across all major healthcare disciplines and incorporates a multi-theatre complex that consists of a lamina-flow theatre, cardiac theatre and a caesarian theatre.
The hospital’s Centres of Excellence are progressive and serviced by specialists playing a critical role in our value proposition. Our core principle is to build and sustain partnerships that will culminate in meaningful collaborations with positive outcomes.

At Midlands Specialist Private Hospital, our focus revolves around patient-centric interventions and positive outcomes.
