Netcare Group

Netcare Group provides innovative, quality healthcare in South Africa and the United Kingdom. We are committed to providing our patients with the highest-quality care, underpinned by living our values and investing in our people, state of the art facilities and the latest technology.

In South Africa, Netcare provides the following services:

Our private hospital and trauma services comprise 53 owned hospitals and 4 managed hospitals, 3 of which are Public Private Partnerships. Netcare has 8,713 registered beds, 319 operating theatres and 87 retail and hospital pharmacies. Netcare’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Netcare 911, operates the largest private emergency service in the country with over 7,8 million insured lives and a fleet of over 200 response vehicles and ambulances, and 3 helicopter and 2 fixed-wing air ambulances.

The Primary Care Division operates medical and dental provider services through Medicross, as well as a managed care organisation that focuses on the low income market, extending healthcare to previously uninsured lives through Prime Cure. This includes a national footprint of 108 Medicross and Prime Cure Medicentres, with 41 retail pharmacies and 12 day-theatres. A group of 590 independent doctors and dentists provide comprehensive primary health services to about 3,5 million patients, funded through private medical aid insurance, managed care capitation premiums or self pay arrangements.

The Prime Cure managed care organisation manages a current cohort of 254,000 capitated lives across 49 medical scheme options, ranging from primary to full risk options. The managed care business manages a designated provider network of more than 10,000 health service providers which includes 3,877 contracted doctors and dentists.

The Medicross Provider Group was acquired as a 100% subsidiary by the Netcare Group in 2001, and the Prime Cure Group was acquired by Medicross in 2006.
