Dr H Heyns Inc. is a private paediatrician situated in the heart of Cape Town at the Christiaan Barnard Memorial Hospital. She is partnering with 4 other doctors to form the THRIVING KIDS PAEDIATRIC CENTRE.

She started her practice in November 2003 and she is currently partnering with a multidisciplinary team of paediatricians looking after the medical needs of all children from birth to the age of 16 years.

She is dedicated to making the doctor experience a pleasant one for everyone, from the patient to the parents and anyone joining.

Often referred to as the teddy bear doctor in the teddy bear room – her office is child friendly with numerous toys and activities to keep the kids occupied while dr Heyns consults with the parents first. The examination area is set up to involve the parents as part of the exam, thereby creating a safe and playful experience for the child. The office is child friendly, so while the child is playing the parent can sit back, relax and enjoy all the information that will be given to them on various topics, relating to both the illness that the parent brought the child in for and any other health related topics.

The waiting area consist of a large open space that is shared by all the Thriving Kids patients as well as a separate breast feeding room, where mom can feed her baby in comfort and privacy.
