The Link Hills Medical Centre is a multi-disciplinary healthcare facility situated in Waterfall, KwaZulu-Natal. The centre opened its doors on 1st December 1994 and has evolved into a fully-fledged medical centre that currently houses 7 Family Practitioners, 2 registered nursing sisters, a dentist and oral hygienist, a physiotherapist and an Ampath laboratory depot.

We pride ourselves on being patient-centric and try and deal with each patient as if they were our own family. Having been operating for almost 25 years, we have built up a reputation of being caring and empathetic, and enjoy being part of the close-knit community of Waterfall and surrounds. We have seen newly borns growing up to have young families of their own and enjoy the long-standing relationships we have with our patients.
