About Us

We are a modern Private Hospital

Midlands Medical Centre (MMC) Private Hospital comprises 274 beds across all major healthcare disciplines – and a multi-Theatre complex including a Lamina-Flow Theatre, Cardiac-Theatre and a Caesar-Theatre. MMC Private Hospital is situated in the CBD of Pietermaritzburg, the capital of KwaZulu-Natal. Pietermaritzburg is 80 kilometres from Durban, and approximately 500 kilometres from Johannesburg. The Drakensberg mountains are just over an hour away.

Pietermaritzburg has a population of in excess of 600 000, and the client-base of the hospital includes the whole of the Midlands region.

The hospital’s facilities are used by a host of General Practitioners and Specialists of all disciplines, as well as Dentists. In its existence of more than 30 years, MMC has become known in the city for delivering excellent and cost-effective healthcare to the communities it serves.

Our Vision

Our Vision is to serve Pietermaritzburg’s doctors and public in such a fashion that MMC becomes our community’s First choice of private hospital.


We will achieve our Vision by our commitment to delivering a quality service to our Patients, Doctors, Shareholders and Staff.


    We will treat them with empathy, maintain their dignity and respect their right to life.
    We shall provide patients with the best nursing care available, and ensure that doctors are provided with excellent technology.
    They are promised a fair return on their investment, taking into account, however, our objective of providing cost effective care to our patients.
    We will deal with our staff in a transparent manner, and regard them as our greatest asset. Training and coaching will be used as tools to develop all our staff to their fullest potential.

We have an established and proud track-record of investing in the latest, state of the art technology, by procuring cutting edge medical equipment.

Recent investments include our fully-kitted new Caesarean Theatre, as well as our Bi-Plane Machine, C-Arm for Vascular Surgery and a Vein Viewer.

The ultimate aim is to ensure that our valued patients gain access to the latest medical technology, in order to produce the greatest possible outcomes in the best interests of their health.

We promised to take care… and delivered
