The Western Cape health department is planning to re-open the Hanover Park Day Hospital today.
Patients had to be turned away because the hospital had to be shut down on Wednesday due to gang violence threatening the lives of patients and staff.
The health and community safety MECs, Theuns Botha and Albert Fritz, met with the management of the hospital and the area’s community policing forum yesterday morning.
They say the safety of the patients and staff will remain a priority.
