State Hospitals -Polokwane Mankweng Hospital Complex – Pietersburg (Polokwane), Limpopo, South Africa

The Polokwane/Mankweng Hospital Complex (PMHC) is a combination of two hospitals - Pietersburg Hospital Campus and Mankweng Hospital Campus. The Role of the PMHC is to provide tertiary services to all Level 1 (District) and Level 2 (Regional) Hospitals in the Limpopo Province.

The Pietersburg Hospital, a massive 450 bed Training Institution, runs in collaboration with the Medical University of Southern Africa (MEDUNSA). Pietersburg Hospital Campus is committed to provide holistic, secondary and tertiary health services. If we cannot provide such services in the hospital, we transfer patients to Steve Biko Academic Hospital (formerly Pretoria Academic) and Dr George Mukhari Hospital. Some of the services that we don’t have in this campus are, however, provided by our sister campus, Mankweng Hospital.

Mankweng Hospital Campus was established as a result of the requests from Magoshi in the Thabamoopo region for a hospital to cater for their people around Mankweng area.

The Magoshi included, inter alia, Kgoshi Mothapo, Kgoshi Mothiba, Kgoshi Molepo, Kgoshi Dikgale, Kgoshi Sophia Mamabolo and Kgoshi Mamabolo of Segopje.  Kgoshi Mamabolo of Segopje donated the land on which the hospital was built. The Magoshi approached the late Dr Cedrick Namedi Phatudi, the then Minister of Lebowa Government, to approach Central Government for funding of the construction of the hospital.


The Hospital was built and commissioned on 1 July 1988, opened officially by the Chief Minister of Lebowa Government, Mr Noko Ramodike.

The vision for a medical school in the then Lebowa territory in the early seventies influenced the idea of building a hospital near the University of the North (now University of Limpopo).
