We exist to help people who have suffered a debilitating accident, or significant illness, return to their optimal functioning.
Our objective is to maximise recovery and patient health gain, while achieving the highest level of independence for each of our patients, as cost effectively as possible.

It is proven that early intervention shows improved function, better patient outcomes, and reintegration back into society, the community, and home environment.
Nurture Aurora is a leader in physical rehabilitation in South Africa. We provide physical rehabilitation and sub-acute in-patient and out-patient care for people challenged with a wide range of disabilities caused by disease or injuries. We are one of a few hospitals in the Nurture Health group that offer a post-acute ventilation unit, which is a specialised service to patients who depend on mechanical ventilation.
At Nurture Aurora, we believe that the patient’s family is as important as the patient. Throughout the patient’s hospital stay, we conduct progress meetings with family members to educate them in proper care practice to ensure a consistently high standard of care, even after discharge. Patients undergo a combination of specially designed therapy sessions to suit their specific needs. They receive up to two hours of intensive therapy per day and, depending on the medical condition, this will include home and life management skills training.
Nurture Aurora is close to the major private and state acute care hospitals in Nelson Mandela Bay metro. It has 74 beds (single and double rooms) and a nine-bed high-care unit.
Our hospital has been designed to promote rehabilitation efficiency, enabling our staff to create a safe, supervised, and structured environment for our patients.
Specialised facilities and services include: Hydrotherapy in our indoor heated pool, occupational therapy in our gym, workshop, and kitchen, physiotherapy in our specialised physiotherapy gym.
All equipment needs can be catered for and we provide comprehensive out-patient care after a patient is discharged.
