Netcare Garden City voted runner up in Readers’ Choice awards

Tuesday, December 5 2017

Netcare Garden City Hospital has been voted the runner up in The Star newspaper’s latest Readers' Choice awards.

“The Star Readers’ Choice awards provide the opportunity for Johannesburg’s citizens to acknowledge those companies which distinguish themselves in terms of excellence and quality of service,” says Jayesh Parshotam, general manager of Netcare Garden City Hospital. “It is truly humbling that our efforts have been recognised in this way.”

“This accolade represents a vote of confidence by the community in the quality of care provided to patients by the hospital and an acknowledgement of the skill and dedication of the doctors, nurses, other healthcare professionals, administrative and services staff who work at the hospital. We are grateful that the hospital has become such an integral and important part of the community we serve and will continue to provide our patients with quality care and service excellence,” he adds.

Sandile Mbele, Netcare Regional Director: Gauteng South West, says: “Healthcare is probably the most challenging sector when it comes to meeting the expectations of clients, as it impacts people’s lives in a much more profound manner than other sectors within the services industry.

“The acknowledgement can be attributed to the staff members and healthcare professionals practising at the hospital living the company’s values of care, dignity, participation, truth and passion in their daily interactions with patients and their families, colleagues and the wider communities they serve. This enables them to consistently deliver the quality care that the people of Johannesburg expect and appreciate.”

The 363-bed Netcare Garden City Hospital, situated in Mayfair in Johannesburg, offers a comprehensive range of medical services but is perhaps best known for its bone marrow transplant unit and neonatal/paediatric intensive care unit. Patients from all over South Africa and the African continent are referred to these units as a result of their immense expertise in these fields.

“The award bestowed on Netcare Garden City Hospital in The Star Readers’ Choice bears testimony to the trust and confidence that the people of Gauteng have in the hospital,” concludes Mbele. “We extend our thanks to the community for this honour and for their on-going support.”
