About Us

Nurture George is a hospital designed to meet all your physical rehabilitation needs. When you choose Nurture George, you are choosing a caring and compassionate team of professionals, a comprehensive range of therapeutic services, and a top-notch hospital.

We are based in Bergville Retirement Village 14B, Denneoord - convenient for Garden Route residents looking for intensive in-patient physical rehabilitation.

How We Can Help

Being compassionate is our objective

Nurture George provides hope through compassion, humanity, and clinical expertise during your rehabilitation journey.

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. We start your rehabilitation journey on the day of admission with a detailed interdisciplinary team assessment. It is proven that early intervention shows improved function, better patient outcomes, and reintegration back into society, the community, and home environment.

Our Services

We are committed to your well-being

Nurture George 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.

At Nurture George, 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.
