Opening of Debbie Cameron Physiotherapy at the Hillcrest Medical Centre
During the past year Debbie Cameron Physiotherapy was accredited – the highest honour that can be bestowed upon a practice by the South African Society of Physiotherapy. This was followed by the appointment of Nolly Mzobe who graduated from UCT with a first class pass for her undergraduate thesis in the study of pain management. Nolly is currently studying for the physiotherapy post graduate diploma in orthopaedic conditions. As a runner and basketball player, she understands why sports men and women want to back to their best in the shortest space of time.
When Debbie Cameron opened the cleverly designed and beautifully renovated practice at the Hillcrest Medical Centre, she employed Tyron Tarpey who also graduated from UCT. Tyron enjoys paediatric work because of the endless possibilities children hold. He has a passion for sport and has experienced success on the sports field in rugby and basketball, playing for his school first teams and for UCT. He understands the importance of exercise for both young and old and is passionate about rehabilitation of all conditions.
“Not only am I excited to have a team of talented and passionate physiotherapists on board, I am thrilled to be part of the Hillcrest Medical Centre complement,’’ explains Debbie. “The other healthcare practitioners within the centre share a passion for delivering excellent patient care which provides peace of mind when referring patients.’’
The opening event took the form of a cocktail party and was enjoyed by over sixty guests. The vibe was festive as the invited doctors, suppliers, patients and friends enjoyed the snacks, drinks, the opportunity to network and see the rooms. The rooms have been renovated to give a feeling of light and space and includes an indoor / outdoor Pilates gym area as well as a wall garden and outside seating area.
As in the case with her practice based at Centenary Medical Centre, Debbie hopes that the Hillcrest Medical Centre practice will continue, with God’s grace, to be equipped, willing and able to serve the community.
“I know that that my team will embrace the experiences that lie ahead and fill them with happy memories, new milestones and unforgettable moments. It is my wish that, as we walk every step of the recovery journey with our future patients, our hearts are filled with compassion, are heads disciplined with the latest research and our commitment is unwavering,” concludes Debbie.
In the words of Pearl Buck – “the secret of joy in work is contained in one word – excellence. To know how to do something well, is to enjoy it.”
