A dilapidated 1928 heritage building in Hillbrow Johannesburg has been restored, renovated and converted into a world-class health and research facility.
The Vodacom Altron Altech Centre Hillbrow Health Precinct for Specialised Services stands on the site of the formerly defunct Hillbrow Hospital.
VAAC is a health and research facility offering specialised health service to women and vulnerable children infected with Tuberculosis, HIV/Aids and sexually transmitted infections.
Specialist contractors GVK Siya Zama were enlisted to restore, renovate and convert the dilapidated, 1928 heritage building, its three-storey operating theatre and main x-ray department block into consultation and delivery rooms.
The renovations also involved transforming another building on the site into an antiretroviral clinic and pharmacy for the community.
