Hatzolah is a non-profit medical rescue service which responds to medical emergencies within the Greater Glenhazel area and selected surrounding areas, from the western border of Edenvale, to Rosebank, and from the Northern border of the Johannesburg CBD to the Marlboro area. This also includes Sandton and Gallo Manor, as well as Greenside, Emmerentia and Victory Park.The medical service was formed to assist existing medical services and the first Hatzolah, Johannesburg team was established in 1998.
The Hatzola team consists of Torah-observant Jewish volunteers who are expertly trained medical responders. With branches in America, England, Australia, Israel and Europe, the organisation makes use of the latest global techniques in the industry and are an internationally renowned emergency service provider. Their mission is “to get the right people, with the right training, to the scene of an emergency - in the fastest possible time”. They pride themselves in offering the most efficient emergency medical response.
Within minutes of receiving a call for emergency assistance, the Hatzolah medical team gets to the scene of emergency situations as quick as possible. Once at the scene, their team of expertly trained staff attend to patients and transport them private or public hospitals. The origination works within a tight knit community to ensure that they always arrive at every scene in the fastest time. Even though Hatzolah’s service is of a world-class standard and incurs significant running costs, the medical rescue service does not charge any patient for the service.
Hatzolah relies on donations and contributions from communities to fund the cost of training their volunteers as well as to cover the costs of their equipment and ambulances.
