At Vision Hospital Group, we’re committed to providing exceptional care to patients and are continually striving to improve our service – which is why patient feedback is so important to us. So we were especially pleased to see that our most recent patient surveys have been overwhelmingly positive.

All of our patients and their families/carers are invited to provide feedback about the treatment and care provided by us. We seek this feedback through an online survey sent to each patient after every visit.

The number of Vision Hospital Group day surgeries across Australia has grown to eleven, with the addition of Boroondara Day Surgery in Victoria.

Vision Hospital Group CEO Amanda Cranage says the site is currently being refurbished and expected to be operational in September. ‘Boroondara Day Surgery expands our offering in Melbourne, with patients now able to access a range of day procedures at five locations across the city.’

Situated in the leafy, inner eastern suburb of Hawthorn, Boroondara Day Surgery will initially focus on ophthalmic surgery. This decision followed extensive consultation and balances the needs of relevant stakeholders, says Ms Cranage.

During the recent Australian Private Hospitals Association Congress, Vision Hospital Group’s General Manager, Greg Brown learned that the combined healthcare sector has the same CO2 footprint and waste generation as the fifth-largest polluting country in the world. Like fellow attendees, he was shocked.

We might be past the halfway point of 2023, but there are no signs of slowing down at Vision Hospital Group!

Australian Ophthalmic Nurses’ Association (AONA) Conference
Ophthalmic nurses play a critical role in Vision Hospital Group’s national network of day surgeries, all of which cater to ophthalmic surgery. So, unsurprisingly, we had some strong ties to this year’s AONA Conference in Melbourne on 18 June.

Vision Eye Institute, Australia’s largest private ophthalmology provider and operator of eleven day surgeries through Vision Hospital Group, announced today a change in its leadership: James Thiedeman has stepped down from the position of Chief Executive Officer after more than five and a half successful years at the helm.

Delivering health services in today’s challenging environment – where staff shortages and burnout are rife – is a balancing act for all providers, regardless of size. Yet, Vision Hospital Group (VHG) is forging another path, where its nurse teams are thriving rather than just surviving. And ophthalmic surgeons and patients are coming along for the ride.

The winners of The Vision Way Awards – our quarterly staff awards – have been announced!

Jacinta Goldsack, our People and Culture Manager, says The Vision Way Awards celebrates staff members who embody our shared values, known as The Vision Way. ‘The Vision Way is a set of 10 guiding principles to support our code of conduct and acts as a benchmark for the expected behaviours of all Vision Hospital Group staff,’ says Ms Goldsack.

As one of the peak bodies for the private hospital and day surgery sector, the APHA (Australian Private Hospitals Association) Congress brings together industry leaders and decision makers to discuss healthcare opportunities and challenges. Representing Vision Hospital Group – which was also one of this year’s sponsors – were CEO James Thiedeman (centre) and General Managers Greg Brown(Day Hospitals; left) and Rodney Fox (Business Development and NSW/SA Operations; right).

Have you been diagnosed with cataracts? Here’s some important information to consider before you start planning surgery.

Cataract removal is only recommended if your vision is impaired and affects your ability to carry out daily tasks (e.g. driving, being safe and looking after yourself at home, participating in hobbies).
