Celebrating Women in Medicine

A Vision for the Future

The Johannesburg Surgical Hospital (JSH) stands as a beacon of healthcare excellence, poised to redefine medical standards. As its doors open in the upcoming Women’s Month, JSH pays tribute to the remarkable women in medicine who spearhead innovation within its walls. With an evidence-based foundation and cutting-edge technologies like the Da Vinci robot, JSH is not just a hospital, but a testament to the limitless potential of women in shaping the future of medicine.

A NIGHT OF DREAMS AND MEDICAL INNOVATION​

THE OPENING OF JSH

It’s spring-time in Johannesburg and there isn’t a cloud in the sky, on what is about to become a night to remember. A night that will leave all those people, whose dedication and ambition have come together, to realise their dream four and a half years in the making. It’s a warm evening. A gentle breeze is blowing and there is  much excitement and camaraderie as the final touches are made to the years of preparation.

Looking Into the JSH Emergency Unit

“The vision of the new Johannesburg Surgical Hospital is something unique in the South African landscape. Our focus is certainly on trying to provide high end emergency care to patients in the best manner possible.” – Dr Peter Anderson Specialist in Emergency Medicine at JSH.

October 17th is World Trauma Day. A day marked out to emphasise awareness around trauma medical care; the necessity for proper attendance to emergency cases to save and protect life during the most critical moments; and preparing and applying acute measures to deal with and avoid trauma fatalities. In appreciation of this day we sat down to talk to Dr Peter Anderson about the state of the art Emergency Care Unit at JSH.

JSH HONOURS BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH

EARLY DETECTION SAVES LIVES

“In first-world countries the five-year survival rate for breast cancer is between 80-90%. In South Africa the three-year survival rate is as low as 59%. This is a huge disparity that is due to a lack of infrastructure; South Africa is still a third-world country.” – Dr Fatima Docrat

JSH continues to bring state-of-the-art, holistic care to patients with the SJF Breast Centre of Excellence; a group of female specialists who have joined forces as a team of women for women, to do what they can in the quest to resolve the problem of South Africa’s significantly low breast cancer survival rate.
