The Eerste River Hospital is a district hospital located in the Khayelitsha Eastern Sub-Structure of Capetown. The hospital provides a comprehensive range of medical services to people in the Townships of Capetown and its surrounding communities. The hospital has a 124 bed capacity with inpatient wards for surgery, medicine, paediatrics and psychiatry. The Emergency Centre treats an average of 1733 patients each month while 3419 clients are seen in it's outpatient clinics. It is however the surgical services that make Eerste River Hospital exceptional.
In 2004/2005 I was allowed to document the hospital with a free pass to all rooms. To make that report complete I started to document the townships in which most of its patients live in.
Later in 2005 these images were exhibited at the Hospital.
