funders with day surgery networks

DHA, in its endeavours to grow the day hospital industry in South Africa, collaborate and build relationships with funders to position and advocate the total value proposition of day hospitals.


A small number of funders in South Africa had limited day surgery networks, but Discovery Health made a significant impact in the healthcare market with the introduction of its expanded day surgery network in 2019. This was as a result of more day hospitals entering the market, creating alternative treatment settings and options for surgeons and patients alike. This paved the way for more funders to follow suite, helping to realise quality, cost effective same day surgery.


DHA in its current form during industry engagements, is not responsible for contract or tariff negotiations.
