South Africa’s Top 20 Private Hospitals

Based on the experiences of Discovery Health patients, South Africa’s top 20 private hospitals were announced on Monday.

While the results of the third Discovery Health Patient Survey Score (PaSS) highlighted gaps in health service delivery‚ unnecessary costs and other areas for improvement, it also shows that private hospitals are continuously meeting patient expectations and needs.

The areas covered by the survey include categories such as pain management and how healthcare providers communicate.

To ensure fairness, the age; gender of patients and nature of illness are taken into account before a conclusion is reached.
