World-class medical facilities – right on our doorstep

Visitors to Johannesburg looking for a place to stay will either go the large hotel route, or the personal guesthouse route.  If you are reading this, chances are you’re already thinking about guesthouses in Johannesburg.

Position is often the most important thing.  If you are on business, you want to be close to your place of work.  If you’re on holiday, you want to be close to the shops and restaurants, and within easy walking distance, or driving distance, of the museums, galleries and main sightseeing attractions of Johannesburg.

But something else to consider, something very important, is proximity to Johannesburg’s medical facilities. We’ve all been on a holiday, or on a business trip, when we’ve come down with a fever.  If that happens, while you are in Johannesburg, you can rest assured that if you are staying at any one of our Johannesburg Guest Houses, you will be well positioned to receive excellent medical care.   Each of our establishments is close to one, or more, of Johannesburg’s private hospitals.

Netcare Rosebank Hospital is located in the heart of Rosebank. It is close to Rosebank Mall and is within walking distance from the Gautrain station.

Milpark Hospital is one of Gauteng’s premier private hospitals. The facility has a level 1 trauma centre and is the first private hospital in South Africa to receive this accreditation.

The Donald Gordon Medical Centre is the first and only private teaching hospital in South Africa. Due to the relationship with Wits University’s Faculty of Health Sciences, patients have access to specialists who have been recruited because they are leaders in their field of expertise and involved in cutting edge research and patient care in South Africa and internationally.

Mediclinic Sandton is one of the biggest hospitals in Gauteng.

Of course, you may land up in one of Johannesburg’s hospitals by choice.  More and more people are choosing to come to South Africa for a bit of ‘Surgery and Safari.’  If you have had a small nip and tuck, then a small, cosy guest house in Johannesburg is the perfect private place to recuperate.  If you’ve come for dental care – it’s easy for the staff to arrange soft foods and a special diet.  You can have all the privacy you need while your bruises go down, or before your stitches come out.

Personal attention also means arranging transport to and from the hospital, and not just for you, but for your visitors too.  Visitors who can stay in the room next door, cottage or chalet, close to you, if you need that extra little bit of love and attention.

Saying all of this, we hope you do not get sick. But if you do, we can help!
