TAKE A LOOK Inside Africa's First Certified "Green" Hospital - JUST OPENED (PIX) by TMKsouth: 9:04am On Apr 07
A new 470 million rand (11,7 billion naira) specialist hospital recently opened its doors in South Africa's capital city, Tshwane (Pretoria) - which is the first certified "green" hospital in Africa, and the fifth in the world.

Developed by Growthpoint Properties, the Cintocare Hospital earned a "5 Green Star" rating from the Green Building Council SA.

Apart from various energy-saving features, the 11,000m2 building also features a lot of glass.

“Studies have shown that natural light promotes healing for the patients but also promotes the general wellbeing of the people working within the facility itself,” said Dr Linda Sigaba of Growthpoint Healthcare Fund in a virtual media tour.

Cintocare Hospital which opened its doors on December 1, 2020 – two months after its initial launch date due to the pandemic – focuses exclusively on ear, nose, throat, head, neck, spinal, facial and vascular surgery.

The hospital generates its own medical oxygen on demand at a special in-house plant, which is a first in South Africa.

The seven-floor hospital consists of 100 beds and five theatres, including a hybrid theatre. The first three floors are for parking, the fourth is for reception and consulting rooms, while the rest of the floors have operating theatres and other medical rooms.

The hospital has a "robotic pharmacy", with mechanical devices that pack all medication and drip sets and dispenses them to nurses, who then distribute to patients.

Due to its specialist nature, not just anyone can walk in for medical attention. Admitted patients are those referred to the hospital by a specialist doctor for an operation or any other medical care.

There's no excuse for any President of a mineral-rich country to be travelling abroad in his second term. It takes less than 5 years to build at least one quality hospital.

I'm sorry to say but it seems you've not been keeping up with latest measures and technology in construction sector unless you mean by Nigerian local standard.

Within two years, you can finish that project and even bigger ones. China built a skyscraper in 19 days:

I meant a first presidential term lasts 4 to 5 years in most African countries. So presidents should have something to show for it.

It's about priorities really. First thing you should do as a new president is get rid of the stadium inauguration ceremony that usually costs 100s of millions with other African leaders and their entourage hosted in lavish hotels and after-parties. Why have this huge bash when you have a massive backlog inherited from your predecessors? Its actually very easy to build or upgrade a hospital if you eliminate wasteful expenditure.

You have said best my brother.I never understood all these luxuries for an inauguration in third world countries...president being escorted by a fleet of heavy German Benzs while the population is dying of hunger.But that's Africans for you - always trying to maintain a false image.

German Chancellors themselves just get sworn-in in parliament and get to work straight ahead. No inviting all of Europe for a bash.

And yet, Nigerians with their over bloated ego will be challenging SA in terms of development. Until you travel out of this country, you wont understand the extent of damage our leaders have done to us.

People are here now shouting for another typical politician to take over in 2023 and the same thing continues.

TMKSouth, please tell us that SA have left us behind. Corruption has finished our country, Nigeria
