Monday, June 28 2021

Having concluded its annual survey across KwaZulu-Natal’s South Coast industries, consulting and research company PMR.africa has once again awarded Netcare Margate Hospital a Diamond Arrow Award for 2020.

The award is the highest possible rating in the private hospital/clinics category and was presented at the recent KwaZulu-Natal South Coast Business Excellence Awards breakfast hosted by PMR.africa. 

The awards are the culmination of an independent research process whereby companies and institutions are rated against criteria relating to the economic growth and development of KwaZulu-Natal’s South Coast. This takes into account levels of managerial expertise, implementation of corporate governance, brand awareness and levels of innovation.

“We are pleased that the efforts of the hospital team have been recognised in this way. The people of the South Coast are without doubt best placed to provide such important feedback and the results of the survey indicate the achievement of our service objectives,” he says.

Ferreira adds that the award carries a great deal of meaning as the healthcare sector has been faced with unprecedented challenges over the past year, and acknowledgement of the hospital’s organisational excellence is encouraging.

“It is our privilege to serve the South Coast community, and we thank them for their continued support. This award is a great honour and we would like to assure the community of our unwavering commitment to continue providing each person who places their trust in us with the best and safest care,” he concludes.
