Western Cape Health and Wellness MEC, Dr Nomafrench Mbombo, says work has started to fix the section of the Vredendal Hospital following the fire.
The maternity ward was among the areas affected by Sunday’s fire – with at least 40 beds having been damaged.
No injuries were reported, and the cause of the fire is still unknown at this stage.
The MEC visited the facility on Wednesday, after the incident, and she says the hospital is coping.
Mbombo added that they have other contingency plans in place.
