The medical team, support staff and facilities within the Virtus Health network all meet the highest level of global quality standards.
All Virtus clinics are certified as operating in compliance with the International ISO 9001:2008 standard and local ART standards. For example in Australia, the Reproductive Technologies Accreditation Committee (RTAC) Code of Practice, and laboratory accreditation such as by the National Association of Testing Authorities, Australia (NATA) govern and audit our clinics. We are extremely proud of our Quality Management Program which guides and directs our daily business operations to ensure that we are able to consistently and reliably meet and exceed the needs and expectations of our patients and customers. Our quality management programs are testament to our commitment to providing excellence in fertility care and fostering a culture of continuous improvement that is dedicated to ensuring that our patients and customers experience is both positive and memorable.
Our underlying strength in process and protocol frameworks is proven with our accreditation to ISO 9001:2008 and other relevant quality standards. ISO9001 is a universal standard of rigorous quality control.
All processes, from clinics to laboratories and day hospitals*, have ISO 9001:2008 accreditation. We first achieved this in September 2008 in Australia, and it has been instrumental in creating a culture of continuous improvement across the Group.
In Ireland our Sims IVF clinic and laboratory is an Authorised Tissue Establishment by the Irish Medicines Board.
In Australia our clinics follow the code of practice set by the Reproductive Technology Accreditation Committee (RTAC) Certification Scheme, developed by the Fertility Society of Australia and independently audited by JAS-ANZ . Laboratories at Queensland Fertility Group, Melbourne IVF, IVFAustralia and TasIVF are routinely assessed and accredited by the National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA), the independent authority for technical best practice.
