North West MEC for Health, Madoda Sambatha conveyed words of appreciation to the medical team at Tshepong hospital following the first neurosurgery which was conducted on a patient this week at the newly revitalised cardiac theatre at Klerksdorp in the Dr Kenneth Kaunda District.
MEC Sambatha said it is encouraging to see the commitment to the mandate of delivering quality health care services to the people of the North West Province bearing fruit in this manner. “The newly revitalized cardiac theatre will operate momentarily as a shared cardiac/neurosurgery theatre here in Tshepong hospital”.

“This theatre revitalization is part of One hundred and fifteen million rand, six hundred and thirty-one thousand, five hundred and fifty-four and seventy cents (R115 631 554.70) project undertaken since 2020 envisaged to be concluded ater this year by the Department at Tshepong hospital”.
The Department has committed Six hundred and fifty-four million rands, four hundred and ninety-one thousand R654 491 000.00 this financial year to the maintenance of health facilities with the aim to improve access to quality services.
