Minister of Health and Social Affairs, Stéphane Valeri, visited the Monegasque Institute of Sports Medicine (IM2S) on Thursday, January 12, to present his best wishes for 2017 to all staff and practitioners.
The visit also highlighted the new services of the institute. On December 13, 2016, the sports centre received the accreditation of the Minister of State for the establishment of beds for Continuing Care and Rehabilitation (SSR). The clinic now offers its patients the benefit of global care including post-operative follow up with a dedicated team. Patients in Monaco, and by extension those who are insured at the Caisses Monégasques, can now benefit from the SSR.
The Institute also has an immediate walk-in consultation service operating seven days out of seven. The objective of the IM2S is to allow a specialised medical examination to be carried out whatever the day of the week and to offer the possibility of surgical priority.
At the end of his visit, Minister Valeri met all the staff and practitioners during an informal reception. In welcoming new staff, he said that “IM2S is an essential part of the medical attractiveness offered by the Principality”.
