New district hospital opens in Soweto

first_img2 May 2014 Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi officially opened the R730-million, 300-bed Zola-Jabulani District Hospital in Soweto on Wednesday, saying the new facility would help to ease the load on Soweto’s Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital. The new hospital will provide accident and emergency services, maternity and post-natal care, as well as gynaecology, obstetrics, radiology, outpatient and pharmaceutical services. It has three theatres for minor operations such as caesarean sections and appendectomies. So far, 921 professionals have been appointed to the hospital, including 26 doctors, 451 nurses and 148 admin staff, and R49.7-million has been spent on medical equipment for the facility. The hospital will mainly service the northern and western communities of Soweto, including Dobsonville, Emdeni, Meadowlands, Moletsane, Mofolo, Zola and Jabulani. Speaking at Wednesday’s opening, Motsoaledi noted that Chris Hani Baragwanath had 2 888 beds, far above the World Health Organisation’s recommendation. He said a hospital with over 1 200 beds was difficult to manage. He said South Africa’s population was growing at a rapid rate, with major implications for its health care facilities. “The solution is to build more hospitals,” he said, adding that in his opinion two more hospitals were needed in Soweto. Referring to the Health Standard Compliance Office, Motsoaledi said inspectors would visit the new hospital to check issues like infection control, the attitude of staff towards patients, cleanliness and waiting times for patients. Gauteng Premier Nomvula Mokonyane apologised to the community for the long time it took to open the hospital. “When we came into office in 2009, we committed ourselves to give Soweto the best.” Premier Mokonyane urged the community to look after the new infrastructure. “Let’s treasure this place,” she said.

The Only Two Hiring Strategies

first_imgThere are only two choices of hiring strategies.Acquire the Talent You NeedThe first strategy is to hire the talent that you need.You can find people who already have the skills and experience to deliver the results you need. This likely means you pay more to acquire new hires. When people have the skills and experience, they demand higher wages. And, you usually have to identify and hire passive candidates, because the people you want to hire are already working.This seems like the best strategy. It seems like hiring people with the talent you need is the fastest and surest way to build your team, but it isn’t always true. There is another choice that works as well, and sometimes better.Build the Talent You NeedThe second strategy is to build the talent you need.This strategy depends entirely on your ability to find people with the right mindset and teach, train, coach, and develop them in the roles that you need them to play.If you are going to build them, you are going to have to find people who can and will grow quickly, or you have to have a set of roles which they can pass through to acquire the skills they need on their way into greater roles.ChoicesYou have to make the choice to execute one or both of these strategies.There is no effective hiring strategy that is built on hiring people without the skills and experience without a development plan to help them acquire those skills.You can choose to acquire the talent you need. You can choose to build the talent you need. Or you can choose to both acquire and develop the talent you need. But you can’t choose not to have a hiring strategy. Essential Reading!

Jane Goodall Reflects On 70th Anniversary Of Hiroshima And Nagasaki Bombings

first_imgLast week marked the 70th anniversary of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings. Conservationist and UN Messenger of Peace Jane Goodall reflected on the event that effectively ended World War II, and the lasting effects it has had on society today.“It is desperately important that we remember our human crimes during this, the 70th anniversary of these bombings,” she wrote. “That we reflect with sadness, and feel shame for the suffering that was inflicted on hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians. That we make a vow to do anything we can to prevent such a horror from ever happening again, and that we educate the young so that they understand why this is so important.“We should think also of those who were injured, exposed to radiation, affected by cancers as a result of all the tests that were carried out to develop these weapons, especially those tests that took place on the Marshall Islands.Let us be joined, in our prayers and thoughts, as we urge the leaders of all nations to pledge that they will never, in any circumstance, authorise the deployment of nuclear bombs.”To read Jane Goodall’s full post, visit JaneGoodall.org.last_img read more
