Every day we subscribe to the core values of the Life Healthcare Group, while individually striving to continually improve facilities, standards and technology.
At Life Beacon Bay Hospital our priority is to focus on the delivery of a special brand of health and care to patients. Within a world class hospital, this unique approach is what makes the difference and helps us to maintain our position as one of the top hospitals in the country.
At Life Beacon Bay Hospital we understand that we have a responsibility to meet the expectations of those who are entrusted to our care as well as the expectations of their loved ones.
This realisation enables us to ensure that we focus on an experience of care for everybody who visits or is admitted to one of our hospitals or healthcare facilities.
All Life Beacon Bay Hospital staff participate in ongoing quality training ‘Q to the power of e’. Here we each come to appreciate the importance of quality in delivery of service and to embrace caring principles of empathy, ethics, excellence, energy and empowerment.

At Life Beacon Bay Hospital everything we do is focused on the delivery of high quality treatment and special, unique standards of care - whether for routine, more serious or extensive procedures.
Our facilities include:
Little Life clinic
We know that life with a newborn can be daunting – especially without the support of professionals who can assist you with guidance on breastfeeding, monitor your baby’s development and milestones and offer you advice on what to except in the coming months.
That’s why Life Beacon Bay Hospital is providing these and other applicable services at our little Life clinic which is now also open once a week on a Friday morning in King William’s Town.
Our clinic offers:

We especially welcome any suggestions our patients may have. If you have any suggestions for us, please send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
