What is your biggest success?

Our greatest success at Rinato Clinic in Burgersfort, Limpopo, has been the establishment and expansion of our comprehensive rural healthcare network. By successfully implementing our vision to extend quality healthcare services to rural communities, we have made a significant impact on the health and well-being of countless individuals. Our advanced diagnostic imaging, emergency suites, and specialized departments have enabled us to provide timely and effective care for a wide range of medical needs.

This achievement underscores our commitment to delivering excellent healthcare, fostering innovation, and providing compassionate patient care to those who need it most.

What has been your biggest hurdle?

Our primary obstacle revolves around the inability to secure a permanent operating space, as we are presently reliant on renting. This situation hampers our ability to provide consistent care. Additionally, the patients in Burgersfort and surrounding town areas often have lower levels of health literacy, impacting their comprehension and adherence to medical advice. Moreover, we encounter difficulties in accessing funding from both governmental and non-governmental sources. Furthermore, due to our rural location, attracting and retaining qualified healthcare professionals, including doctors, nurses, and specialists, is a constant struggle. As a result, all the medical specialists we have on board often travel long distances to reach the clinic.
