2013 – Year of Celebration at MetWest

As MetWest kicks off the new year today, we do so looking forward to a year of celebrating 20 years of MetWest Surgical, the first floor day surgery. This co-incides with the introduction of the new National Standards Рan exciting era of ensuring all day surgeries in Australia meet essential criteria, decreasing risk for patients.  For MetWest, these standards follow on from 19 years of continuing accreditation with ACHS (The Australian Commission on Healthcare Standards).  MetWest Surgical will continue to do the standards required by the ACHS to meet best practice, in addition to the 10 National Standards.

Many changes have occurred at MetWest throughout the 20 years – physically to the building, to the Ophthalmologists and staff, as well as improvements in medicine and technology.

The birthday celebrations will extend throughout the year, with May 2013 marking the celebratory month.
