Hundreds of people were injured on the evening of October 4 when two passenger trains collided at the Van Riebeeck Park Railway Station in Kempton Park.

More than 190 injured commuters were treated at Lenmed Zamokuhle Private Hospital.

According to the hospital stakeholders relations manager, Nobuhle Linda, the hospital management wishes to extend their gratitude to everyone who was involved, including ER Consulting (the hospital’s emergency team), local general practitioners, community at large, specialist doctors, emergency services providers, the radiology department, as well as staff members who worked through the night making sure patients were well taken care of.

“Your dedication, rapid response and care do not go unnoticed,” added Linda.

Linda further said ER Consulting would also like to express its heartfelt thanks to all emergency services, medical personnel and support staff for the joint response to the train crash.

“ER Consulting dispatched seven emergency trained doctors to Lenmed Zamokuhle Private Hospital and assisted in the treatment of about 190 patients along with hospital staff and other allied health personnel. Thanks to the joint efforts of everyone involved, we can humbly report that no patient in the care of the Zamokuhle Private Hospital facility has lost their lives and most patients could be discharged after emergency intervention and treatment,” she explained.

Linda said ER Consulting would like to wish all commuters injured in the train accident a speedy recovery.

“It was a privilege to be part of the team who assisted with medical service delivery to patients,” he said.

Lenmed Zamokuhle Private Hospital wishes all affected commuters and their families well.
