The intervention by the provincial Department of Health n KZN to prevent McCord hospital from closing is a move that will serve the country’s goal of extending health service to the most marginalized citizens.
DENOSA is particularly pleased to note that our pleas that the department of health intervene in the matter was considered and that the negotiations between management from the hospital as well as the department of health were informed by the best interest to service the people of the province.
The department did all in its powers in ensuring that the hospital does not close. The department will now take over the hospital, following the meeting on 29 January.
As DENOSA we would like to pledge our support to the Department of Health for making the right decision.
