Last year’s Hospital Association of South Africa Conference was a roaring success. We hosted visitors from Brazil, the United States, England, India, Kenya and of course, South Africa. Our Gala Dinner was, as always, spectacular. This year we move our conference to Johannesburg from Cape Town, and we have made tweaks to the programme that will ensure the most flexible, best value offering we can muster at a fraction of the cost of other conferences. Stay tuned to the Hospital of South Africa by following us on Twitter (@HospitalAssocSA), or search and follow us on LinkedIn or keep an eye on this web site for developments and details. Below is a word from the Executive Director of Public Affairs who oversees the conference, about the date and venue.
