Division of Cardiology at Chris Hani Baragwanath Academic Hospital.
Hello and Welcome to the Division of Cardiology at Chris Hani Baragwanath Academic Hospital.
Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital is the 3rd largest Hospital in the world located at the gateway into the world-famous township of Soweto. The Cardiology Division at this hospital is the largest and the busiest in the country. It is a tertiary referral centre for all regional hospitals in Southern Gauteng, Most of the North West Province, and because of migration pattern in South and Southern Africa, we often serve patients from all other Provinces and other African countries.
We provide care to adult patients with all sorts of cardiac conditions and are the pioneers in certain aspects of cardiology such as Cardiac MRI imaging, 3D echocardiography and speckle tracking, percutaneous treatment of coronary chronic total occlusion and mitral balloon valvuloplasty. We have re-established our EP program and others are on the pipeline.
As one of the teaching platforms for the Health Science Faculty of the University of Witwatersrand we provide Cardiology training for both undergraduate and post-graduate students of the University. We have trained Cardiologist for RSA and from a number of other African Countries and overseas countries such as Zimbabwe, Kenya, Tanzania, Libya, Uganda, Rwanda, Germany and Switzerland. Furthermore we provide practical training for Clinical Technology Students in Cardiology under the able leadership of Mr. Welcome Madondo.
With the webpage we hope to update you with new services and assist you in accessing the services we provide.
