On June 28th, the Dr. José V. Chayet Auditorium buzzed with excitement as CODET Vision Institute hosted its much-anticipated quarterly Town Hall meeting. After enduring a long period of restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all employees were finally able to come together again.
This Town Hall held immense importance as it provided a unique opportunity to reinforce the CODET culture in all its aspects. During the gathering, the challenges faced by the institution since the beginning of the pandemic were addressed, along with the progress made on projects aimed at enhancing the patient experience within the institute. Additionally, the meeting shed light on the goals set to achieve by year-end.
The event was organized by CODET’s management team, comprising CEO, Director of Business Development, Director of Operations, Director of Finance and Administration, along with the Human Resources department.
The agenda kicked off with motivating words from CEO, who expressed his delight at being able to reunite for such a meaningful event after a long hiatus.
Furthermore, the event introduced new faces to the CODET team. The 2023-2024 fellowship cohort was presented, and the new collaborators who joined CODET in 2023 were introduced, providing them with the opportunity to get acquainted with their colleagues.

His addition further bolsters the medical team’s capabilities and promises to elevate the excellence of healthcare provided by CODET.
