News Description

BUSINESS DAY - PAGE 6 Globally, day surgery hospitals have changed the experience of patients by offering an alternative to acute or conventional hospital surgery. In SA, the concept of day hospitals is gaining popularity — particularly as a result of high hospital costs. Lee Callakoppen, principal officer of Bonitas Medical Fund, reveals that direct hospital costs were 43% of the total scheme expenditure, according to its hospital dashboard for the full 2019 year.
