The Medical Forum Theatre Day Hospital

Medical Forum Theatre is the Eastern Cape’s first private day hospital and has a longstanding history within the metro. Founded during the 1960’s by Dr Johan du Toit (now retired), its legacy continues to avail general theatre space to other medical practitioners for day case surgeries.

Medical Forum Theatre (MFT) is a state-of-the-art healthcare facility that specialises in day procedures providing treatment, assessment or surgery with patients returning home thereafter with no overnight
stay is required.

According to the Day Hospital Association of South Africa, more than 60% of all surgical procedures can be performed in day hospitals. This is a result of advances in anaesthesiology, laparoscopic surgery and the requirement for shorter post-operative recovery periods.

We are members of the below associations and are registered & designated service providers to most
South African Medical Aids.
