The Johannesburg Development Agency (JDA), on behalf of the City of Johannesburg, has completed the detailed concept design for the development of the two storey, 1870m² Turffontein Clinic, a facility which will provide improved healthcare for the communities of Turffontein, Rosettenville, Kenilworth and neighbouring suburbs in Johannesburg south.
Turffontein Clinic will be situated in Region F of Johannesburg, an area immediately to the south of the CBD and which functions as the first point of entry into Johannesburg from Southern Gauteng.
To be built on a 2960m² ERF area, the clinic will be located on the corner De Villiers Street and Van Hulsteyn Street, a stone’s throw away from Main Street, the main commercial street of Rosettenville, making the clinic ideally connected via public transport and non-motorised transport linkages. Its location will also ensure that a wide range of users can access the health care facility. In a region where urban sprawl is evident as well as rapid residential development, including townhouses and cluster developments, the Turffontein Clinic is designed to effectively and efficiently meet the growing healthcare needs of the community. Once completed the clinic will be equipped with a 120 seat waiting area, 18 consulting rooms, an emergency and stabilisation unit, a mother and child section, counselling rooms, a group room for ARV Treatment and TB therapy, a testing facility and antenatal care. The clinic will also have an isolation room, a central pharmacy, social work counselling rooms and ablution facilities. The JDA delivers projects in alignment with the City of Johannesburg’s (City) Growth and Development Strategy (GDS) 2040 which provides the overarching strategic vision for the City, identifying priorities and key challenge, growth targets, and a broad vision for the future City. Turffontein Clinic will supplement the various JDA projects that have been undertaken as part of the Turffontein Development Corridor, these include the Turffontein Storm Water upgrade, Rotunda Linear Park and the Turffontein public environment upgrades.
