BMC - Belvedere Medical Centre
Belvedere Medical Centre was duly licensed and opened its doors to the public on 30 November 2012.
The clinic is the brain child of two qualified and experienced medical doctors, Dr Simbarashe Tatenda Makuni (Clinical Director) and Dr Mohammad Aejaz Anjum (Finance Director).
The company has since recruited the services of Mr Tendai Tashingiswa Makuni a Student Actuary to focus on the Marketing and Risk Management of the company as it grows from strength to strength.
Belvedere Medical Centre is situated at 189 Samora Machel and Blakeway. Belvedere Medical Centre applied for a grade C registration with Afhoz to ensure that we meet our vision to serve the healthcare demands of the majority populace of Zimbabwe. We offer an incomparable service which caters for both up market clientèle and the working middle class with the main catchment area being Belvedere, Harare North, Harare East and Harare South.
