Wentworth Hospital is unique in that it boarders on a nature reserve. In January 2003, Dr. A. Reddi – Head of Department of the Cardio-thoracic Surgery (now based at Inkosi Albert luthuli Central Hospital) undertook a project to list all the indigenous trees found on the premises of Wentworth Hospital. The objective was to label these trees with the KwaZulu Natal conservation Service tags nailed onto them for easy identification, hopefully increasing awareness and appreciation. Each tag cost +- R6.00, the cost was borne was the Cardio-thoracic Surgery Department before they transferred.
Furthermore, one of the most notable aspects about our hospital, as soon as one enters the grounds, is the site of the monkey population who reside in the nature reserve bordering on the hospital, who visit the hospital daily.
