Good Governance at Victoria Hospital
Victoria Hospital is proud to say that it is a well-managed hospital, evidenced by its record of minimum irregular expenditure and by all accounts being paid within 30 days. It also operates within budget, providing further proof of Victoria Hospital’s dedication to good management practice. Much of the credit for this goes to CEO Dr Melvin Moodley and the team leaders who are committed to managing their resources at the highest standards.

Victoria serves the Southern District which stretches from Wynberg in the north to Hout Bay and Imizamo Yethu in the west, Phillipi and Lavender Hill in the east and Simonstown and Masiphumulele in the south. Areas such as Plumstead, Retreat, Diep River, Constantia, Fish Hoek, Muizenberg are also covered by Victoria. The Forensics Department covers Cape Town central all the way to Simon’s Town.
Victoria cares for patients both without medical aid and with medical aid but who are not covered for certain procedures. We admit South African citizens and African Nationals or foreigners with asylum seeker or refugee status to receive care at Victoria Hospital. We take care of a high percentage of elderly people as a result of the demographic of the neighbouring areas.
Yes – in theory, the Department of Health funds the day-to-day running of Victoria Hospital, but providing the care that we believe all members of the community deserve often demands more funds than government has earmarked for our budget.
Services like key-hole surgery, with all its benefits of quick healing and less scarring, should not be considered a luxury for those with medical aid, but something that is in reach of everyone.
The media often focuses on the shortcomings of government hospitals. We aim to be a hospital that is constantly striving to offer top quality care. Put plainly, it comes down to our desire to bridge the gap between rich and poor or patients with medical aid and those without.
However, smaller projects like Colour of Hope (ward refurbishment), Healing Hands (support OT and Forensics teams), Abundant Life (sponsor Palliative Care support groups) and Suds for Scrubs (sponsor sterilisation equipment) for have smaller budgets and may capture your heart and support for personal reasons.
Victoria Hospital is a well-managed hospital that operates within budget and pays its bills within 30 days. All department heads are incredibly disciplined and manage their own departments and resources exceptionally well. As its a small hospital it is also far easier to ensure ethical management of funds, and integrity is highly prized at Victoria. The hospital has a long-standing reputation for excellent care and dedicated staff, despite the challenges of a lack of space and tight government budgets.
