The Spero Clinic Team
“My team is my greatest asset and my family away from home. They are highly trained in real life situations, working with some of the sickest chronically ill people in the world. This on the ground experience cannot be learned from books or schools.”
-Dr. Katinka Van Der Merwe
Our Staff is handpicked from all walks of life
People meant to be on my team are not simply hired because I had a position to fill, but because they were meant to be part of my team. The one thing they all have in common is what I call the “X Factor”… a fierce compassion for those in pain that cannot be taught.
How We Work
My team is my greatest asset and my family away from home. Their experience cannot be learned from books or schools. Together, we celebrate our patient victories and hold each other up when the patients we care about may struggle. We eat together around the same lunch table every lunch, because we ARE family. A chosen one.
