The Medical Centre was established in March 1970 as a clinic and has maintained its legacy through offering quality service at a reasonable cost.
Its core values include continually striving to improve its facilities, standards and technology.
Their system of practicing medical care has attracted specialists from a variety of medical and surgical fields. These specialists are able to use their skills efficiently and work cooperatively with a team approach to patient care. This team approach is the key to their success. The Medical Centre was founded upon the premise of group medical practice and today the centre boasts of over thirty regular specialists working together for the benefit of the patient.
The Centre operates under the following values:
We require students to act as support staff and gain experience in a modern medical environment.
The nurse will support recovery from illness or operation by using care plans, carrying out care procedures and assessments and by focusing on the needs of the patient rather than the illness or condition.
The nurse assistant will take care of the patient's everyday needs. CNAs answer patients' calls for help, take their vital signs, and monitor their behavior and physical condition for progress or deterioration.
The services of a dental student are needed to prepare equipment that will be used in dentistry procedures, to ready patients for these procedures, and to help the dentist during these procedures by passing instruments, holding the suction catheter in place, and generally anticipating the dentist's needs.
