In 1992 the company employed less than 5 people who led our first hospital Botshelong Empilweni Private Hospital to open its doors to the Vosloorus community in 1994. With over 20 years of providing quality healthcare in the communities we operate in, Clinix Health Group owns and manages seven hospitals and has approximately 2600 individuals that are working in our hospitals on a daily basis.
In reaction to the inequalities in healthcare, members of a discussion group which included Dr G.M. Pitje, a lawyer, Mr R. Maponya, a businessman, and 36 doctors – one of whom was Dr N. Motlana – came together to level the playing fields by forming their own company which would look at establishing a medical scheme and a private clinic, to operate in the disadvantaged black community.
Kwacha, the founding company was established, after which Sizwe Medical fund was launched.
