  • Postmasburg District Hospital

    Through the assistance of Jasper, we have managed to assist the hospital by doing the following:

    Purchasing much needed Hospital equipment through the:

    • Installation of Air Conditioning Units in the maternity ward. These 14 air-conditioning units would assist to regulate the temperature of the rooms, especially for the benefit of new born babies, who at times may die, due to the unpalatable heat or cold inside the hospital.
    • Paying a stipend to two hospital administrators who will assist the hospital from December 2016 onwards. These much need hospital administrators would help ease the work of nurses,  who at times have to man the hospital reception desk in order to do the required admissions for a patient.

The health of our local community is very important to Jasper. As a result, we have decided to extend our continued assistance to the Postmasburg District Hospital.

 

Patients from Tsantsabane and other neighbouring towns such as Kgatelopele, Daniëlskuil and Olifantshoek, are all treated at the Postmasburg District Hospital. For the past three years, there has been no access to hot water in any of the wards, nursing accommodation, laundry, cleaning house, workshop or office areas.

Past Health Projects

This was a huge concern, seeing as it affected patients’ personal hygiene and infection control, while it was a daily battle for the doctors, nurses and general staff alike, trying to cope without hot water.

 

The Postmasburg District Hospital hot water installation project has now been completed by Jasper Power Company. The installation consisted of Solar Ray Geysers with Electrical Assistance and Electronic Geyser Wise Controllers, covering all the wards, nursing accommodation, laundry, cleaning house, workshop and office areas.
