The integration of the St John of God Murdoch Hospital Surgicentre into the wider Murdoch hospital is complete

Following the acquisition of the Surgicentre in early 2020, the team began integrating their processes and systems with St John of God Murdoch Hospital, while maintaining their focus on patient experience.

Nearly a year later, the amalgamation is complete and all staff members are formally Murdoch caregivers.

The official welcoming event, held on 22 January, began with a smoking ceremony and Welcome to Country by Dr Richard Walley, followed by a blessing and commissioning of the day surgery by Father Jose.

The St John of God Murdoch Hospital Surgicentre also underwent renovations over the New Year holiday period, ready for the influx of patients in 2021.

It offers a wide range of medical and surgical services for day patients, including orthopaedics, oral and maxillofacial, gynaecology, extra ocular ophthalmic, plastic, reconstructive and general surgery. 

The facilities include a preoperative television room, two beds in holding bay, two operating suites, two trolleys, six post operative beds and six recliner chairs in second stage recovery.
