Every day, our teams work together to make a difference for each patient who walks through our doors. Meeting these international standards reflects our commitment to continuously improving the service we provide and placing the safety of our patients at the centre of everything we do,” Ms Wee said.
“This achievement is a testament to Icon’s robust governance structures, stringent policies and procedures, and dedication to providing compassionate and evidence-based care for patients and their families.”
