Kingsbury Information

Life Kingsbury Hospital is located in the upmarket suburb of Claremont in Cape Town. It falls within the Souther Suburbs, just a short distance away from the University of Cape Town (UCT). Kingsbury Hospital is one of the biggest Life Healthcare facilities in Cape Town and is widely known for its high quality of private healthcare coupled with a team of top medical specialists. Its smaller sister facility is the Claremont Hospital around 500 metres away on Main Road, Claremont. Both hospitals typically function together due to their close proximity.

Kingsbury Life Hospital has 134 beds with another 100 beds at Claremont Life Hospital. There is a 9 bed general ICU (intensive care unit) and a 5 bed high care unit in Kingsbury Hospital itself.

Mothers looking at giving birth at a Life Healthcare hospital in the Southern Suburbs would have to turn to Kingsbury Hospital. There is a 25 bed maternity ward with 4 delivery rooms for natural birth and a spa bath. The hospital also has a 4 bed neonatal ICU for preterm babies or newborns with complications. A clinic for mother and baby provides ongoing services after birth and even has a breastfeeding consultant to advise new moms.

Kingsbury Hospital is also well known for its neurology and vascular units, as well as its gastrointestinal unit for endoscopic investigation and surgery. The hospital has also gained a reputation for its dedicated units and practitioners focussing on abdominal aortic aneurysms, pelvic floor dysfunction and cardiac rehabilitation. It is also one of the hospitals of choice for weight loss (bariatric) surgery and obesity management programs.
