UCTPAH Overview

UCT Private Academic Hospital (UCTPAH) is conveniently located in the heart of Cape Town, adjacent to the world-renowned Groote Schuur Hospital.

At the UCTPAH we provide high quality, affordable and patient-centred medical care in a warm and welcoming environment. Our superbly equipped, modern facility is unique in that it has access to an enormous network of collective medical wisdom. This is done via collegial collaboration with the University of Cape Town Medical School and the Physicians at Groote Schuur Hospital.

The hospital is backed by the finest expertise from the UCT Medical School. Many of the doctors are world-renowned within their specific fields and represent some of the finest medical minds in South Africa. They also have the backing of a large network of collective medical wisdom via Groote Schuur and Red Cross Children’s Hospitals. 

Originally known as the UCT Medical Centre the hospital was opened in February 2002 by German investor, Rhön Klinikum. In August 2002 a South African BEE health consortium Community Health Group (CHG), Netcare and West Care acquired the hospital, which was renamed UCT Private Academic Hospital.

You can expect the attention of some of the finest medical minds in the country. The fact that we offer this unique network of medical wisdom means you can rest safe and secure, knowing you are in excellent hands.
