A Message from our outgoing GM, Denise Thomas

As Royal Rehab continues to grow and pioneer in our sector, we are reorganising some roles to strengthen our ability to continue to best serve our patients.

After 13 years as general manager at MetroRehab Hospital, I am transferring to the role of chief operating officer, Royal Rehab. It is an exciting time for the organisation and for MetroRehab as we work together to continue to achieve excellence in the provision of rehabilitation and disability services.

It has been my honour and great privilege to lead MetroRehab Hospital and I am delighted to welcome and introduce Nicholas Edwards into the role of general manager/director of clinical services MetroRehab Hospital. Nicholas has over 25 years’ senior management and executive experience within both the public and private healthcare sectors. With his extensive experience, I am confident our patients and partners in care can expect the same high level of clinical expertise, care, and compassion.

It is an exciting time for rehab in Australia with Royal Rehab leading the way with the introduction of advanced robotic exoskeleton. You can learn more about the EksoNR in this issue of Rehab Matters, as well as doctor and client stories and much more.
