About Us

Shipmed Inc.

Based in the leafy suburb of Glenwood, Shipmed Inc is one of the oldest and most established travel and medical clinics in Durban, and has a formidable international reputation.

 

Situated close to Durban Harbour (the biggest harbour in Africa) as well as local hospitals such as Life Hospital Entabeni, Shipmed Inc is able to offer comprehensive medical services to private individuals, corporate companies and the shipping and maritime industries.

Under the leadership of Dr J. Addignton, Dr D. Dungan & Dr N. Park-Ross, Shipmed Inc has grown to a staff complement that includes 3 Nurses, and 7 support staff who all work towards the singular goal of ensuring premium health care to our returning, and new patients.

 

Although Shipmed Inc began by offering basic medical services to the international shipping industry, it has expanded its operations over the last few years to include a 24-hour emergency operation as well as permanent medical support for various shipping lines.

 

Pre-employment checks are also now a part of the service portfolio.
