Welcome to Royal Hospital

Royal rehabilitation hospital was established based on the vision of “bridging the gap” between acute, sub-acute and home care. It is a rehabilitation facility that accommodates for all the needs of patients who don’t essentially need the conventional in-patient treatment at an acute hospital.

The royal hospital provides a more relaxed, almost home-like setting where treatment is done with a combination of professional skills, state of the art equipment and a great deal of unconditional care and support.

Royal rehabilitation hospital is a private sub-acute hospital, located in Pietermaritzburg, Kwa-Zulu Natal and lies within the vicinity of all the leading hospitals in Pietermaritzburg.


We pride ourselves in a holistic approach to medical care as we believe that patient satisfaction is a combination of excellent physical health and good emotional well-being. While using the holistic approach to medical intervention we are by far the best and most equipped rehabilitation centre recognised and a successful outcome is what we promise.

We offer services to assist an individual’s recovery of realistic functional ability, regardless of the severity of the initial injury. Our royal range of therapies includes physiotherapy, occupational and speech therapies, including allied health care of dieticians, social workers, psychologists, rehabilitation nurses; as well as numerous specialty programs.
