The facility situated in Ashton boasts 16 beds of which 14 are funded (80%) by the Western Cape Government Department of Health and provides intermediate care support for patients residing within the Langeberg sub-district.
Admission to the centre is via bookings based on referrals completed by a doctor or clinic with the consent of the patient or their next of kin.
