La Verna Hospital was established in 1989 as Ladysmith Hospital Holdings. The hospital boasts a proud history of healing going back over a century when the facility was utilised by the Augusterian nuns and thereafter as a convent and a TB sanatorium rendering healthcare. In 1989, a humble 28 bed facility soon evolved into what now certainly is a first world facility, offering various clinical disciplines with specialist care within its institution.

In 1993, Lenmed Health acquired a 33.3% share holding in this hospital, and due to the success of this venture, Lenmed increased its shareholding to 100% in 2004.
