Siemens board member Siegfried Russwurm pays us a visit

clip_image002A member of the Siemens Board and CEO of the company’s industry sector, Siegfried Russwurm, was accompanied by local CEO Stuart Clarkeson and Helen Brown, Siemens’ head of Healthcare, as he was taken on a tour of the CT ICU facilities at Netcare Sunninghill Hospital by Lynda.

Siemens is a valued partner of the WSPCF and works closely with us to provide medical equipment and healthcare training to our doctors and nurses who work tirelessly on helping us save children’s hearts.

Netcare utilises Siemens interventional equipment across the group and recently set up a new electrophysiology lab at Sunninghill Hospital. We valued the visit and the opportunity to show Siemens how we are putting their sponsorship to good use.

About The WSPCF

The Walter Sisulu Paediatric Cardiac Foundation (WSPCF) is a philanthropic paediatric cardiac foundation for Africa, focussing on delivering life-saving surgery for underprivileged children with congenital heart disorders from across Africa. It also aims to develop diagnostic and treatment skills amongst Africa’s medical fraternity and conducts critical research into paediatric cardiac healthcare. The cardiac surgery or intervention is undertaken at the Walter Sisulu Paediatric Cardiac Centre for Africa situated in Netcare Sunninghill Hospital in Johannesburg, , as well as at Cape Town’s Netcare Christian Barnard Memorial and Red Cross Children’s Hospitals. The WSPCF was founded by Dr. Robin Kinsley in 2003, and was established as a living legacy to the late Walter Sisulu and his widow, Albertina, both of whom dedicated their lives to helping children in need.
