Much needed improvements made at Seshego Hospital


Limpopo MEC for health Dr Phophi Ramathuba has officially opened the NeoNatal Unit and Mother Lodger facility at the Seshego hospital. The MEC opened the facilities on August 27.

The Hospital Unit used to have eight beds and now they have increased to 21 beds.

A Neonatal Unit is where the new-born babies who were born prematurely weighing less than 2kgs and those who are sick are cared for.

All other healthy babies stay with their mothers in a postnatal ward where they are checked and their mothers are helped to breastfeed them.

The newly refurbished unit is furnished with appropriate equipment.

“The population of Seshego is growing and the hospital has become congested hence this intervention is very critical and is in line with our budget speech as we move towards launching of our Maternal and Child health Centres of Excellence,” one per district.

 “I am pleased that the new Neonatal Unit will be of great assistance to the communities around Seshego and their babies will no longer be referred to Mankweng Neonatal Unit. We will also see a continuous decrease of Infant and Neonatal Mortality Rates” Ramathuba said. 

She also commended the management team and nurses of the hospital for the sterling job they are doing.
