Didier Gamerdinger, Minister of Social Affairs and Health, visited the Medical and surgical orthopedic institute of Monaco (IM2S) on September 14, where he was welcomed by Céline Caron, Deputy Chairman of the Board of Directors, Dr Ballerio, Medical Director, and Gérard Luccio, Managing Director.
During his visit, Mr Gamerdinger was able to appreciate the way in which the institution works, centred on the overall care of the patient.
After meeting with the administrative teams, he saw the Health Care, Immediate Consultations and Outpatient Surgery Unit, which treats more than 50 percent of patients receiving surgery at the facility.
He was also able to visit the medical-technical premises, the pharmacy and the operating theatre, where more than 3,500 procedures are performed each year, as well as the newly-renovated and restructured surgical facilities to accommodate patients in optimal conditions.
During an informal reception, Mr Gamerdinger met with the practitioners and the health care teams, whose synergy ensures a medical service that is particularly appreciated by patients, as well as by medical and administrative staff.
