About Us

ER Consulting Inc. is an emergency unit management company
with its head office located in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Our vision is to be the best, most innovative emergency medicine company
on the continent of Africa.

Who we are

ER Consulting Inc manages emergency units nationally in twenty-five (25) private hospitals, treating in excess of thirty thousand (30000) patients every month. With a full-time doctor compliment of one hundred (100) 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 partners, First Care Solutions (Pty) Ltd (administration) and the Africa Institute of Emergency Medicine (Pty) Ltd (training).

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.
