At Virtus Health, we believe the surgical experience has a major impact on patient recovery and treatment outcomes, that is why our specialist day hospitals are designed to provide the best possible environment for patients. We want our patients to feel supported throughout their journey when undergoing fertility treatment and other surgical interventions.
We now manage six high quality specialist day hospitals across Australia. As well as providing IVF services, they are also utilised by other operating specialists such as plastic surgeons, urologists, gynaecologists, ophthalmologists, dental surgeons and hand surgeons, who are attracted by the expertise and efficiency of our staff and the advanced services our hospitals provide.
Virtus Health has part ownership of City West Day Surgery, based in Westmead.
Patient comfort and dedicated medical support
In order to enhance our patient's experience our hospitals are designed to be more patient friendly and less clinical than a typical hospital environment. They are also designed to maximise efficiency for medical teams. All doctors have a dedicated and consistent team of experienced nurses for support.
