Botshilu Private Hospital is a private healthcare facility in Soshanguve, on the northern side of Pretoria. The aim of the hospital is to provide equitable, accessible, and affordable private healthcare services. We are the only private hospital in the township of Soshanguve, and we take pride in our vast array of clinical and medical specialities.

We strive to make a difference in the community and by so doing, we are pleased to host a Colour 8km Fun Run/Walk with the main objective to encourage the community to take charge of their health and maintain healthy lifestyles. The event is planned to take place on Saturday, 22nd of July 2023. As it has been celebrated before the deadly COVID-19 pandemic, the event is planned to take place in conjunction with International Mandela Day, with the backdrop to give back 67 minutes to the community through activities that will assist in keeping the participants fit, healthy, and well-equipped with valuable health information by our various in-house specialists and other healthcare professionals. This initiative is celebrated under our new CSI initiative, #BotshiluCares, We are because of our community.
