We appreciate this compliment from Manoj Singh whose young son was treated for an asthma attack at Ethekwini Hospital and Heart Centre.
“I would like to take time to compliment Nurse Zama Dlamini from Ethekwini Hospital and Heart Centre. My son was admitted recently when he had an asthma attack. Nurse Dlamini went out of her way to calm him down. Even when my son vomited, she was right there assisting and not afraid of getting messed on. Her gentle touch while inserting the IV line for meds, ensured my son experienced as little pain as possible.
Although she had other patients to see too, she gave my son extra special care. She also accompanied him to the Surgical Unit and came the next morning to check up on him. Nurse Dlamini is really passionate about her work and as an outsider you can see that.
The service my son received from her makes me believe in Lenmed and I would recommend other friends and family members to use Ethekwini Hospital and Heart Centre.”

Superior Health Care
Lenmed Ethekwini Hospital and Heart Centre (LEHHC) is a privately owned, ultra-sophisticated and digitally integrated hospital north of Durban.
In line with its values LEHHC offers best quality patient care. Everything about the hospital from the ward design to the sophisticated software and medical technology works towards the twin goals of superior health care and maximum operational efficiency. Consequently, LEHHC has been voted one of KwaZulu-Natal’s top five and South Africa’s top 20 hospitals by Discovery Health patients for the past five years consecutively. The annual Top 20 Private Hospitals list, published by Discovery Health, is based on patient surveys upon discharge and measures the quality of nursing and doctor care, pain management, environment as well as information surrounding medication and discharge.
In addition, to LEHHC’s numerous accolades, including being a Paediatric and Adult Heart, Stroke, Renal Dialysis centre of excellence, a holistic range of medical disciplines with advanced medical technology and equipment are offered. The 373 bedded hospital offers a complete spectrum of medical, surgical, maternity, and paediatric services with seven state of the art theatres, including a neuro-operating theatre, as well as an entire floor dedicated to the cardiac centre of excellence. These are complemented by an experienced team of specialists, nursing staff and support services including a 24-hour emergency service.
LEHHC is the only private hospital in KwaZulu-Natal that offers much needed paediatric cardiac surgery services. In additional to this essential paediatric service, you will find almost all the various paediatric sub-specialists based at this facility, setting the bar for this modern child-centred healthcare facility.
The multidisciplinary 15-member paediatric team representing 11 specialist disciplines which include: paediatricians, paediatric cardiology, paediatric cardiothoracic surgery, paediatric haematology and oncology, paediatric genetics, paediatric neurology, paediatric pulmonology, paediatric endocrinology, paediatric gastroenterology and hepatology, paediatric general surgery and paediatric nephrology.
Several successful lifesaving cardiac surgeries have already been performed and many children are seeing the benefits of engaging with the specialists for their relevant health matters.
This Paediatric Centre of Excellence is the brainchild of LEHHC manager Niresh Bechan. “It was critical for the province to have this service because all paediatric cardiac cases had to otherwise be referred to Johannesburg and Cape Town. This meant displacing families and moving children away from their environment to access this service,” said Bechan.
