Private hospitals' contribution to the South African Economy

An economic multiplier study was conducted on HASA’s behalf and aims to quantify the overall eco­nomic contribution and value of private hospital services activities in South Africa. Private hospitals are crucial to the delivery of healthcare in South Africa. At a time when the healthcare industry as a whole (and in particular the private sector) is under review, it is important to understand how private hospitals fit into the economy and what their contribution is.
