Monash health has recently expanded services at our Casey Hospital site, including opening a new ICU, expansion of the emergency department, opening of a new ward tower, and creation of 6 new theatres, a new endoscopy suite and day surgery unit. The purpose built endoscopy suite with new Olympus equipment, and provation endoscopy reporting systems will provide patient centric, high quality endoscopy with a focus on cancer surveillance.
