Groote Schuur Hospital is a government funded public hospital, where most patients pay little to nothing for their care. It is a tertiary hospital and is well respected for its trauma care. Many visiting physicians come from around the world to train at GSH. The trauma center alone sees 1300 patients each month, with 50 beds in total and 10 high care beds. The trauma center sees both blunt and penetrating trauma, intentional gunshot and stab wounds and unintentional motor vehicle accidents. The number of gunshot wounds is high, averaging 70-80 per month. Groote Schuur Hospital is the referral site for many of the surrounding hospitals as it is one of two hospitals in all of Cape Town with 24 hour access to CT scanner (though it is still at least a 5 min walk/run from the resuscitation area).
