The South Metropolitan Health Service (SMHS) has changed the way health care is delivered in Perth’s southern suburbs.
These changes are increasing the ability of our health services to meet the growing needs of people living and working in the south metropolitan area and across the State.
In the next decade, SMHS has an exciting and challenging opportunity to fundamentally reform the way services are provided and to develop a health service that remains patient-focused, innovative, accessible, safe, effective and sustainable. The opening of Fiona Stanley Hospital in October 2014 is a significant milestone in the reconfiguration of services, the likes of which had never been undertaken anywhere else in the world.
It is our Vision is to provide seamless access to innovative, safe, high quality health care through:
- Our patients and the community - improving patient care and population health outcomes
- Developing collaborative networks and partnerships
- An integrated approach across professions, sites and services, sharing knowledge and expertise, recognising and building on strengths
- Alignment of resources, systems and processes across the health service to achieve our goals.
