Corporate Social Initiatives
Melomed Private Hospitals operates five private hospitals in South Africa. These hospitals
service approximately 5 million members of the previously disadvantaged community who often
exhibit needs that the rest of society takes for granted. Lack of numeracy, literacy, proper
nutrition and recreational amenities to name a few, are such examples.
Over the years that Melomed Private Hospitals has operated in these disadvantaged communities, our company has become increasingly aware of these needs and has whenever possible, made interventions to alleviate some of those needs to a certain degree. Melomed Private Hospitals finds it necessary to develop a social responsibility programme that serves the communities, as it feels it incumbent that it ploughs back some of the benefits derived from the surrounding society.
By assisting in improving the quality of life for those less fortunate, it will be helping to forge a more equitable and a less discriminatory South African society. Melomed Private Hospitals is in the fortunate position that is has built up considerable experience in promoting and conducting social responsibility initiatives through various health awareness programmes.
