The new multi-million Rand Hillside clinic has been officially opened in Beaufort West by the Western Cape MEC for Health Services Dr Nomafrench Mbombo. In her address Dr Mbombo said the clinic was a result of residents who raised concerns that the previous clinic was too small for the services it needed to provide.
As part of the strategy to make the clinic part of the “green” revolution, the single story building using less air conditioning. This is because the thicker walls ensure that the building heats up more slowly during the day and cools down more slowly in the evenings.
The roof was also constructed to maximise the natural light. The design allows less sun to shine into the building during the summer months and allows more sun during the winter months.
The clinic is a clear indication that the DA led coalition is listening to the needs of the community and that it will continue to work towards the service delivery that the residents deserve.
