European Union of Private Hospitals

UEHP at SANTEXPO 2022 in Paris

May 2022 – The 56th edition of SANTEXPO took place in Paris last 17-19 May, welcoming around 600 exhibitors and 20,000 professionals.

Accredited under the framework of the French Presidency of the European Union in 2022, the SANTEXPO 2022 show brings together health actors around a common theme: « Health – the new frontier for Europe? ».

Healthcare, a pillar of the welfare state in Europe, has reconfigured itself in the light of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Confronted with a global health crisis calling for coordinated responses across national borders, the national health systems have strengthened their experience of working together and are coordinating their efforts to protect the health of their populations.

Sharing ideas and competencies, strengthened cooperation on industry, research and innovation, and common prevention policies: will healthcare in Europe have become the new frontier for European integration?

THE UEHP team took part in SANTEXPO and we are delighted to see that Europe is at the core of all discussions. We are very engaged in bringing the private hospitals perspective to the global debate.

In particular, our president, Dr Garassus, was invited by our French member, Fédération de l’Hospitalisation Privée (FHP), to their booth in SANTEXPO, reflecting on the challenges our national healthcare systems face, how digitalization and eHealth can improve care delivery and workforce management.
