Sub-acute care is relatively new and rapidly growing medical care service.  It merges the sophisticated technology of a hospital and the efficiency of a skilled nursing facility to reduce the cost of services while maintaining the quality of care.

Sub-acute care provides intensive rehab services for patients that no longer require critical care, but are not ready to return home.  Sub-acute is a step down from your normal acute hospital and specialise in care.

Personalised care is provided 24 hours a day, seven days per week by qualified nursing staff, all rooms fitted with a 24 hours nurse call system and a telephone service on request.

Sub-acute is covered by all Medical Aids.  Sub-acute patients can only be referred by a doctor.
