Netcare hospitals are at the forefront of providing private healthcare in South Africa, thanks to a longstanding and well established partnership with specialists. We continue to invest in expanding our hospitals to meet the growing need for quality healthcare services and in equipping our facilities with the latest available technology. This approach creates an environment where the specialists who practise at our hospitals are able to provide their patients with cutting-edge, life-saving treatments – many of which are ‘firsts’ in South Africa and Africa.

It is our privilege to care for patients from across South Africa, neighbouring countries and further afield in Africa who make use of the specialised treatments offered at Netcare hospitals. Our focus is on achieving the best outcomes for our patients. Netcare’s comprehensive quality programmes, which are aligned to evidence-based international best practice, underpin the treatment provided by medical specialists and the care patients receive from our professional nursing staff. All Netcare hospitals in South Africa are also benchmarked against the Department of Health’s National Core Standards.

In living the Netcare values of care, dignity, truth, participation and passion in their daily interactions, Netcare’s staff members are committed to caring for our patients with respect, dignity and compassion.
