About Us

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

We are in Woodland Hills, Bloemfontein, conveniently placed for Free State residents looking for intensive in-patient rehabilitation.

How We Can Help

Being compassionate is our objective

Here at Nurture Hillandale, we provide hope through compassion, humanity, and 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 get to work as soon as we can, as early intervention has been proven to show improved function, better patient outcomes and reintegration back into society, the community, and home environment.

At the heart of Nurture Hillandale lies our experienced and expert interdisciplinary team: the people who work closely together to meet the needs of each patient to produce excellent results. They all understand the life-changing events you have been through and are here to provide the physical, emotional, and social support you need. These are a few of the people you will meet at Nurture Hillandale:

  • Rehabilitation Medical Practitioners, primarily responsible for your rehabilitation programme and overall medical care
  • Rehabilitation Nurses who will help you with difficult tasks and help you practise what you have learnt in therapy.
  • A team of therapists including physiotherapists; occupational therapists; speech, language and swallowing therapists; and social workers; who are responsible for the practical activities of your rehabilitation, helping you to regain your ability to perform daily activities.
  • Rehabilitation Programme Managers who will assist in planning and implementing your discharge arrangements, and act as emotional support for your family.
  • Case managers who liaise and negotiate with your medical aid scheme or funder before and during your stay with us.
    In addition to this, we also have part time psychologists and dieticians.

Our Services

We are committed to your well-being

Hillandale Hospital provides 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. Patients undergo a combination of specially designed therapy sessions to suit their specific needs.  They receive intensive therapy daily and, depending on their medical condition, this will include home and life management skills training.  At Nurture Hillandale, 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.   

Training will be provided with carers or patients’ family members prior to discharge, to assist a patient to continue with daily activities at home.  In appropriate cases, work assessments will form part of discharge planning to determine whether a patient will be able to return to work. Our social workers will also assist in planning in the case of the patient being unable to return to work.  A referral to out-patient services may occur because of a referral from your doctor, a concern of your own for yourself or a loved one, or as part of planned discharge process.
