“Optimal care to every patient every day”
M-Care Optima recognises and honours the Constitution and the legislation of the Republic of South Africa and strives to deliver service and manage business accordingly.
M-Care Optima is committed and dedicated to fulfil the needs of the psychiatric health care environment by:
Some Psychiatrists have been dreaming for years about a better therapeutic facility in Bloemfontein. After various unsuccessful attempts a licence was awarded for a new psychiatric unit in 2009.
Drs Jordaan and Meyer started with the development of OPTIMA Hospital and within nine months the old Bloemfontein Inn was demolished and rebuilt to the current OPTIMA Hospital.
The Hospital was taken into use in February 2010, after a long period of blood, sweat and tears.
The hospital was officially opened by patients that were hospitalized at that stage. That was only one example of our high focus on patient care, instead of financial gain.
We remain proud and stand in awe at the difference OPTIMA makes in the lives of hundreds of patients. We invite you to change your life with our help.
Great care has been taken in making the decision behind interior decoration, lights, paintings, ornaments and even the layout and plans of the building. We try to create a flow and calm environment with a feeling of being at home even though it is a hospital.
The circle at reception symbolizes the full circle a patient undergoes to reach health.
At Optima you will come across different pieces of symbolism. The buildings’ outside view is square and regular which symbolizes strength and order.
(Angular shapes are also a symbol of manliness). In the reception area you will find circles as well as flowing lines at the desks. This illustrates and represents tenderness, endlessness and, comprehensiveness (circles are symbols of femininity).
In the porch you will walk through a circle of lights in the roof and a dark circle on the floor. It represents the shiny (right) side that we keep above and the dark (wrong) side that we keep away. Here you can come and find your real self between the various parts of yourself.
