With a full time doctor compliment of seventy five (75) and a part time accredited locum pool of over two hundred (200) doctors, ER Consulting Inc. is the largest provider of consultative emergency medical services in the private sector on the African continent.
The company has its origins in a doctors’ partnership created in 2001 to manage the emergency unit at Mediclinic Sandton. In January 2005 the partnership was incorporated to create ER Consulting Inc. Managing three emergency units at that time, a decision was made to expand the company and to develop the services offered by the business. Ten years later ER Consulting Inc. is now the leading independent emergency unit management company in South Africa operating emergency units in Mediclinic, Netcare, Life Healthcare and Lenmed Hospital Groups.
The emergency medicine experience for a patient is not confined purely to the healthcare delivered, but rather to the greater patient journey through the system. At ER Consulting Inc. we are cogniscent that the system needs support from several areas including the hospital, the specialists in the hospital, allied disciplines, the emergency medical services and very importantly the administrators. We seek to create a seamless integration of the healthcare delivery into this system through our sister company, ER Corporate Administration (Pty) Ltd.
Based on our core values of integrity, ethics and attention to detail, ER Consulting Inc. has developed into the emergency unit management company of choice, creating value for our patients, our partner hospitals and our doctors.
The ER Group was formed in early 2009 to facilitate the expansion of the ER divisions. The ER Group comprises of four companies, ER Consulting Inc., ER Corporate Administration (Pty)Ltd, ER Hospitals (Pty)Ltd and ER Advantage Medical Investments (Pty)Ltd.
