About Us

We Are A Modern , Unique Rehabilitation Hospital

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.

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.

Our 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 patient centered care and support.

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 strive for Care without Compromise.

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.

Our Mission

Royal Hospital aims to be the rehabilitation healing centre of excellence for patients across the health care continuum. At the root of all Royal Hospital’s accomplishments are the values, traits and behaviours of our team and associates.

Core Values:

  • Excellence: we accept nothing less than the best from ourselves, and are committed to both technical excellence and service excellence.
  • Respect: we treat each other and those we serve with dignity and respect.
  • Innovation: evidence-based medicine is a hallmark of our approach. We continually ask the questions and seek the answers.
  • Collaboration: we work with others toward the common goals stated in our vision and mission.
  • Integrity: we honour our commitments to patients, colleagues and the community.
  • Diversity: we value and promote diversity with respect to gender, race, religion, ethnicity and physical ability/disability.
