Description and History
Roland Physiotherapy is a physiotherapy practice based in Namibia. We have practices in Windhoek, Okahandja, Oshakati and Ongwediva. Our main focus is around serving hospitals.
The heart of our practice is situated in Windhoek at the Roman Catholic Hospital. The hospital is a modern 120 bed facility and has a state of the art ICU consisting of 10 beds. This is the only private hospital in Namibia offering cardiac surgery. In this practice we service hospital patients as well as out-patients.
Market research conducted by us during 2005 showed that private physiotherapy services were traditionally only offered in the major centres such as Windhoek, Swakopmund and Walvisbay, and that great demand exists in other towns. As a result of this, in 2006 we were the first to open a private practice in Oshakati, a major centre in the north of Namibia. From this practice we also service the Ongwediva Medipark, a private hosptial which opened its doors during 2007.
The next step was soon taken with the opening of the Rehoboth practice at the Rehoboth Medical Centre. This is an out-patient practice which also services private patients in the St Mary's Hospital. The Rehoboth physiotherapy practice is no longer part of our team.
During 2008 we joined the Medical Centre in Okahandja. This practice is mainly out-patient based. As our commitment to this small community, we do visits to the old age home and provide free monthly exercise classes to the residents. This project is well supported by the staff and residents of the old age home.
We are well equipped, both in terms of our location and our highly dedicated staff, to continue with our quest to provide first world physiotherapy services to all areas in Namibia.
