The Department of Internal Medicine at Kalafong Hospital

 

Kalafong was recently upgraded from a secondary to a tertiary hospital and is in the process of aligning services to fulfill this status.

The Department of Internal Medicine renders services to patients from the Western and Southern greater Tshwane area. We utilise 180 out of the available 850 hospital beds, and share a high care and ICU unit (14 plus 8 beds respectively) with other Departments. More than 20000 patients are seen per year at the General Medical Outpatient Department, as well as Specialised Diabetes and Rheumatology Units (catering for an additional 1000 and 600 patients respectively). More than 6000 patients per year are admitted to medical wards, mostly via the Emergency Unit. Supportive consultative services are offered to all other Departments, including a shared service to pregnant diabetes patients, support and training at the Immunology Clinic by a consultant and rotating interns.
