Pax Europaea
Europe is now facing major dangers at its own borders. In these dark and uncertain moments when peace in Europe is compromised, private hospitals and their dedicated professionals must continue to protect and improve the health of European citizens.
European collaboration was key to fight the COVID-19 crisis, and it is this same spirit of cooperation and solidarity that we must keep on when facing this international threat. We must secure Europe´s social cohesion and protection and its economic stability.
UEHP hospitals and all their workforce are fully committed to ensuring that health services are accessible to all citizens, and to preserving lives. That is our commitment, for Pax Europaea.
Dr Paul Garassus
President of UEHP
Solidarity with Ukraine
European private hospitals stand in solidarity with health professionals and hospitals in Ukraine. UEHP will follow the evolution of the needs and possible actions to be carried out to help the Ukrainian hospitals, which will be coordinated by our member, the Federation of Polish Private Hospitals (OSSP).

Healthier Together Initiative: call for best practices on non-communicable diseases
Non-communicable diseases represented 80% of the EU’s disease burden before the COVID-19 pandemic. The European Commission is therefore calling for best practices focusing on prevention and management of non-communicable diseases: cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, chronic respiratory diseases, mental health and neurological disorders, and health determinants, as part of the ‘Healthier together’ – EU Non-Communicable Diseases Initiative.
To support EU countries with reducing the burden of non-communicable diseases and improving citizens’ health, the European Commission invites governmental and non-governmental actors to submit proposals for best practices via the EU Best Practice Portal by 15 May 2022 (midnight CET).
After this date, the European Commission will invite the owners of the top-ranked best practices to present them to representatives from EU countries. This may lead to joint/wider implementation across the EU under the EU funding programmes. The identification, dissemination and transfer of best practices is a priority for the Directorate General for Health and Food Safety with the aim of ensuring progress in health promotion and disease prevention throughout Europe.
Please note that the owners’ active involvement and collaboration is fundamental and expected for the top-ranked best practices.
For more information, please visit the full call for proposals: pb-portal (europa.eu)
HERA first work plan with €1.3 billion for preparedness and response to health emergencies in 2022
Last 10 February, the new European Health Emergency Preparedness and Response Authority (HERA) presented its first annual work plan, which will have a budget of €1.3 billion in 2022 to prevent, prepare for and rapidly respond to cross-border health emergencies.
Following the adoption of the 2022 work plan by the HERA Board, HERA can now start implementing actions to strengthen preparedness and response capabilities within the EU, address vulnerabilities and strategic dependencies and contribute to reinforcing the global health emergency architecture.
As a key pillar of a strong European Health Union, HERA has set out a number of ambitious deliverables for 2022, both in the context of the ongoing COVID-19 response, and for preparedness for potential future health threats.
Prevent and prepare for future cross border health emergencies: In the “preparedness phase”, HERA will work closely with other EU and national health agencies, industry, research community, civil society and international partners to improve the EU's readiness for future health emergencies. Actions include:
  • Procuring and stockpiling medical countermeasures for a series of public health threats with a budget of over €580 million;
  • Releasing over €300 million to research and development of medical countermeasures and innovative technologies against emerging threats;
  • Building a network of ever-warm manufacturing facilities that can be mobilised in case of emergency (EU FAB);
  • Establishing a long term and large-scale EU platform for clinical trials and data platforms;
  • Identifying three high-impact health threats, in addition to COVID-19, by the end of spring in close collaboration with Member States in the HERA Board, EU agencies, international partners and experts. 
Detect future health threats: HERA will in addition carry out threat assessments and intelligence gathering, develop models to forecast an outbreak, and map out a response plan at EU level. Actions for 2022 include:
  • Putting in place a state-of-the-art real-time health threat detection and intelligence system;
  • Creating a dedicated IT platform for threat assessment and threat prioritisation. 
Respond to health threats: In the context of the response to the COVID-19 pandemic, HERA's emergency response functions have already been activated. In the event of further cross-border public health emergencies at EU level, additional action will be taken, notably by activating emergency funding and launching mechanisms for monitoring, new targeted development, procurement and purchase of medical countermeasures and raw materials. Ongoing actions include:
  • Ensuring the timely provision of COVID-19 vaccines to EU Member States, including variant-adapted vaccines if needed;
  • Procurement of COVID-19 therapeutics for EU Member States;
  • Scaling up national capacities for the detection and scientific assessment of variants;
  • Ensuring delivery of vaccines across the world.

World Cancer Day
World Cancer Day is held every 4 February and it is the global uniting initiative led by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC). By raising worldwide awareness, improving education and catalysing personal, collective and government action, we are all working together to reimagine a world where millions of preventable cancer deaths are saved and access to life-saving cancer treatment and care is equitable for all - no matter who you are or where you live.
Created in 2000, World Cancer Day has grown into a positive movement for everyone, everywhere to unite under one voice to face one of our greatest challenges in history.
Each year, hundreds of activities and events take place around the world, gathering communities, organisations and individuals in schools, businesses, hospitals, marketplaces, parks, community halls, places of worship - in the streets and online - acting as a powerful reminder that we all have a role to play in reducing the global impact of cancer.
While we live in a time of awe-inspiring advancements in cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment, many of us who seek cancer care hit barriers at every turn. Income, education, geographical location and discrimination based on ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability and lifestyle are just a few of the factors that can negatively affect care.
So this year's World Cancer Day's theme, “Close the Care Gap”, is all about raising awareness of this equity gap that affects almost everyone, in high as well as low- and middle-income countries, and is costing lives.

UEHP Partner
Ernst & Young (EY)
Christian Egle, GSA Health Sector Leader
E&Y is partner of the European Private Hospitals Awards 2022
What is EY's involvement in the European health sector?
Thinking along the patient’s journey, EY works with all different stakeholders within the European healthcare system. One key element is EY’s strong connectivity within the sector which enables us to assemble the right teams, share leading practices across Europe and address healthcare organization’s needs, whatever location they are active in.
In order to achieve a stronger cross-border collaboration, the EY health sector is today organized as a one structure within Europe. This is a key added value for our clients. Our focus in Europe is centered around Digital and Emerging Technologies, Innovation, Customer & Employee Experience as well as Sustainability. We are committed to developing industry focused solutions that help health care organizations anticipate industry trends and create competitive advantage. Our solutions ensure the delivery of better health outcomes and personalized care. Today, we are stepping into the age of “Health Experience”. Companies will have the opportunity to build richer and more meaningful relationships with all parties in the value chain. These relationships will no doubt strengthen customer loyalties and trust – and digital technologies will provide the tools. We are staying close to our clients such as at ERASMUS or Karolinska to help them stay ahead of the trend.
Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) = what is your involvement, and do you accompany projects with a European dimension in Health (no commercial secret but more a global reading of the market)? And what are the growth sectors: biology, imaging, providers, etc.?
At EY our M&A activities in Europe for the health sector have a focus on advising private equity funds within the provider space. For instance, in Germany we have a strong focus in this area due to the recently increased PE’s attraction to the German outpatient market. We also cover a wider European focus by advising on inorganic growth strategies for cross border acquisitions.
On a transactions perspective we also have been involved in several health projects including Imaging, Nursing Homes, Hospital, Medical Laboratories and Pharmaceutical companies.
In Portugal there is a clear tendency for growth of the Hospital segment, with space for consolidation. The Medical laboratories market is still considerably growing, in line with the pandemic. There is a strong appetite for investment in this segment. One segment that has seen a strong expansion is the Wellness segment, especially for dietary supplements, that are arousing great interest from investors.
Overall, the horizontal growth of the Health sector maintains a growth trend where players are looking to invest in more health services in order to widen the specter of care services and to create a strong cross selling synergy between different players.
Do you think that the European health sector will be different in terms of organization after the COVID-19 crisis?
COVID-19 has accelerated the move towards care delivery outside the four walls of a traditional health system. Meeting these expectations will mean expanding the traditional definitions of innovation in health care, which historically have focused on the safety, effectiveness or efficiency of care. Of course, these will always remain important, but patients and providers alike now expect and demand more: a more seamless health experience, delivered where and when it is wanted. For instance, due to COVID-19 health providers are required to reconsider their integrated strategies, redefine existing partnerships and prioritize innovation as a pathway to winning in the market. In fact, the pandemic has accelerated previous trends driven by economic and demographic shifts, widening competitive landscape, accelerating cost pressures, digitization and consumerism. These trends impact not only health providers, but all the stakeholders within healthcare, with payers probably being one of the stakeholders that is being more pressed to adjust faster. Questions such as how they will pay for health care and how quickly they will be able to adapt contracts and payment methods to unexpected situations such as pandemics and hospitalization at home make new business models and investments necessary.
That is why, at EY we believe the European Health Sector will be not only different, but better in the years to come, provided we can all rise to the challenge of fostering these changes. The technology needed is already here and the crisis has made clear the need for changes. We should not ignore it.
How can we encourage cooperation in health between Member States? Do you see a need to encourage the European dimension of organizations (exchanges of experience, critical size, best practices, etc.)?
For EY cooperation is the cornerstone of all important initiatives. Be it between different types of stakeholders, different member states or different teams within the same project it is always invaluable. In the case of healthcare, cooperation is even more indispensable because one missed communication might mean the loss of human lives. Even though Europe holds many different health systems, the pandemic has proven to us that Europe is only as strong as its weaker link and that the need for information to flow across countries at the speed of light is an essential asset. Therefore, it is essential to promote cooperation in all of its forms: sharing of common standards, experiences, best practices, data, etc. and ensure that together we are building a more equitable and efficient healthcare system for all European citizens. Here are some examples we can elaborate on: open data platforms, smart health solutions, the use of clinical and genetic data to promote personalized health and reduce costs, etc.
You are helping to organize the European Private Hospital Awards: what are your expectations for this event?
At EY we are proud to support events such as this one, because we strongly believe it is our goal to help build a better and more sustainable world and in that sense all experiences that help promote the sharing and the advancement of the best healthcare initiatives within Europe, especially in the past years, should be valued and fostered. In fact, if there is something the world has proven to us in recent history, it is the need for countries to come together and take advantage of the best practices wherever they may come from and spread them across countries. Acting accordingly, we are growing our Healthcare-Team in this region by size and depth so we can bring new insights and content to clients. Supporting this event is also an opportunity for us to learn from European hospitals about future challenges and risks.
Finally, but not least important, at EY we are also strong believers in rewarding good work, and we are convinced that healthcare providers are one of the most deserving stakeholder groups to be rewarded for their unbelievable job in the past years. In this perspective it is our expectation that the European Private Hospital Awards will be a unique opportunity to recognize private health providers across Europe, and to keep Health in the economic and social agenda in such atypical times.

Presentation of UEHP partner Association, the Bulgarian "National Union of Private Hospitals"
What is the place of the private clinics your association represents in the hospital landscape in your region? (market share, patient base, access to care...)
The modern system of health care and health insurance in Bulgaria dates back to 1999, when the National Health Insurance Fund was established, and when the diagnostic and treatment structures of the Ministry of Health and the municipalities were transformed into commercial companies. Many private companies with the principle activity of providing health and medical services to the population were established.
Today, all medical institutions in Bulgaria in primary, dental care and pharmacies, most of the structures in outpatient care, and one third of the hospitals are private companies.
Krasimir Grudev, Chairman of the Board of the Association of Private Hospitals
This is specific for Bulgaria and it differs from the structures of health care in most European countries. Almost all of these companies work with patients of the National Health Insurance Fund, with patients of the several small health insurance funds and with private patients.
"National Union of Private Hospitals" (NUPH) unites 23 of the most successful, reliable, dynamic and preferred by patients private hospitals. It unites both small, highly specialized hospitals and middle and large multiprofile ones, that include all medical specialties.
NUPH is an association of hospitals that are willing to share widely their experience and managerial capacity for the development and implementation of best practices and most advanced approaches in hospital care. It represents 25% of the beds in private hospitals in Bulgaria, with more than 3,000 employees. All of the member hospitals work with the National Health Insurance Fund, which contributes to over 80% of their income.
To what extent do private hospitals contribute to improving the public health service in Bulgaria?
For the past two decades since the change of the health insurance model in Bulgaria, the private initiative built and made available to the public new, modern, high-tech hospitals, without the state having invested any funds for this.
Today, private hospitals own 25% of the beds and employ 20% of the country's medical staff. They are leaders in the field of robotic surgery, invasive cardiology, oncology, obstetrics and gynecology, ophthalmology, orthopedics and traumatology, personalized medicine. They provide their patients with open and timely access to the latest methods of diagnosis and treatment, combined with high medical professionalism and care. The medical specialists have received an additional job opportunity with best working conditions and a worthy remuneration. That is why today the private hospital sector in Bulgaria has the confidence that it is part of the best healthcare that Bulgarian citizens deserve.
For the last two years in the context of combating the COVID pandemic the role of private hospitals became even more crucial. From the very beginning, almost all of them opened beds and treated COVID patients, at the same time helping the state and municipal hospitals in the most stressful moments, providing them with equipment and specialists. 25% of our fellow citizens, facing this unprecedented threat to their physical survival, have been treated and are being treated in private hospitals.
How do you see private hospitalization and care methods developing in the coming years in your country?
The knowledge and experience gained by private hospitals over the last two decades can help compensate for years of systemic mistakes in Bulgarian healthcare.
By fostering fair competition and developing free enterprise, private healthcare can help ensure high quality and technological renewal of health and medical care in Bulgaria.
The management approach practiced in private hospitals can serve as a model for achieving clear quality and financial indicators for the management of other medical institutions, to ensure efficient spending of health care funds and worthy remuneration of medical professionals.
Through public-private partnerships, the private hospital health initiative can provide quick access to quality services even where there are no organizational, financial or technical capabilities of the state or municipalities to do so.
The adoption and use of appropriate business models in healthcare, assigned on an equal, competitive and competitive basis, can help cost-effectively and qualitatively solve the problems of prevention, screening, treatment of mass diseases, long-term health care and building a supportive environment for people with disabilities and vulnerable groups; can solve the issues with the missing structures, specialists, equipment in some regions, can keep and increase the health specialists where they are not enough, increase their qualification and provide opportunities for their career development.

Hans Martens at the launch of the UEHP Factbook in Portugal
Hans Martens was in Lisbon on the 21st and 22nd of February, invited by the Portuguese Association of Private Hospitals (APHP), to present the Factbook on private hospitals, recently published by the European Union of Private Hospitals (UEHP).
Oscar Gaspar, President of APHP; Hans Martens, Health Economics Expert and author of the Factbook
In the interviews he gave to the main newspapers in Portugal, Hans Martens had the opportunity to answer many questions and reflect on the trends of health systems. He argued that in the aftermath of the pandemic and taking into account the current population pyramid, it will not be possible to sustain the health systems as they exist today without creating enormous inequality between those who have access to paid care and those who depend on the public health service, and for that very reason, public authorities should focus on the health needs of citizens, without prejudice, and with a view to increasing access to care.
He argued that, without ideological preconceptions, greater use of private providers will be inevitable, especially in these post-pandemic times and for diseases with a higher incidence.
Hans Martens gave the example of his country, referring that any Dane would say that he had the best health system in the world, but at the moment, when there are 100,000 postponed operations per year and more than 55% of Danes have health insurance to be able to have access to the care they need, it proves that the public offer is insufficient, and the private sector is essential.
In line with the UEHP Factbook, Hans Martens also stressed the need to focus investment and analysis on results and the impact on the quality of life of citizens. He also emphasized the potential that digital transition has in health, whether in diagnosis, monitoring and follow-up, or even in terms of management, which opens up good prospects for the future.
Finally, Hans Martens was very emphatic in his message that "We must start caring for our health, and not only treat the disease, and that also involves a plan that integrates everyone, that generalises timely access to care".
Oscar Gaspar, president of APHP, mentioned that Hans Martens' presence in Portugal was essential to help the dissemination of the Factbook. The agenda of efficiency, innovation, value-based healthcare and freedom of choice needs someone who can speak with authority and knowledge and present evidence.

The creation of a hospital space
The UEHP is launching a new section in its newsletter, “hospital architecture”, a fascinating subject.
Architects who build a hospital integrate multiple parameters in their construction plans in order to design what is called a “hospital space”. It is this hospital space that we want to talk about, because the modern hospital of the future, which is more like a hotel than a classic hospital, must be a space of comfort for all those involved, and a place where the patient must feel “like at home”. Hospital architecture contributes to care and a successful patient experience.
Piotr Gerber, PhD in Science, Architect and Professor, UEHP Board member
The hospital should be a practical and comfortable place for health professionals, doctors and nurses, so that they can focus on their core business - care - and be efficient in their work. It should also be an inspiring place to work, with for example a good view from the windows, adequate lighting, beautiful colours... The space should be the right size, not too small and not too big.
This hospital space should also facilitate the integration of the people who work there, allowing them to achieve a working synergy, to come together around a task, a commitment. In very large hospitals, people are scattered, and managers sometimes have problems with team cohesion. Having for example a single cafeteria as a central meeting point can be a good idea. Here too, the architect will be keen to create a universe that brings people together.
Private hospitals, because of their status and because they commit their own funds, mainly take three major points into account when carrying out their projects: quality, investment cost and operating costs, which in the end allows choices based on common sense.
Quality is a major point and the architectural choices will determine the quality of the hospital space: good materials, good ventilation, ease of cleaning, good lighting, sound insulation, etc. Quality is also the aesthetic aspect, the choice of colours, the luminosity, the comfort, the beauty of the materials and equipment...
Operating costs are also scrutinised in order to define the investment required to obtain the desired hospital. Here too, a long-term projection is necessary to make the right choices in terms of the size of the establishment and materials, which must be resistant, easy to clean, sustainable, and efficient from a thermal point of view to save on heating and cooling, for example...
The architect takes all these elements into account and puts the cursor in the right place.
These are all aspects that we would like to address in our next sections of the UEHP newsletter in 2022, with examples and testimonies of European private hospitals, which have embarked on the adventure of creating a hospital space.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me, send me some good examples, share your own experience: piotr.gerber@muzeatechniki.pl.
Piotr Gerber graduated from the Faculty of Architecture at Wrocław University of Technology in 1982. In 1996, he obtained a PhD in Science (doctoral dissertation on the development of industrial architecture). He is involved, as an architect and manager, in hospital renovation projects, including the renovation of historic hospitals. Piotr Gerber is member of the Board of UEHP since many years.
Ribera de Molina Hospital, Murcia, a strong commitment to sustainable development

The Ribera de Molina Hospital is committed to the UN 2030 Agenda objectives that we have integrated into our strategy and roadmap as a member of the Ribera Group, which is committed to a responsible CSR. Thus, we set our targets in some of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to identify and manage the risks related to our activity and our value chain. We also identify other targets that we can promote through our capacities and skills.
At the Ribera de Molina Hospital, we integrate sustainable development through our prevention and health promotion programme, establishing public-private alliances with our local council and the NHS, developing joint actions in the field of health care. We can say that we are a transparent organisation accountable to society through our annual sustainability report.
Of course, with our portfolio of healthcare services, we contribute to SDG 3 (good health and well-being) through our Mission, Vision and Values (MVV) and our own quality management system (SMEX), by contributing to citizens' access to quality essential health services, as well as by building our region's and country's capacity for early warning, risk reduction and management of regional, national and global health risks. In addition, by creating jobs, we are contributing to MDG 8 on decent work and economic growth.

I am proud to say that one of the most significant achievements of the hospital is the inclusion of people with disabilities in the workplace, and the equality plan we have, which promotes the integration of people regardless of gender, age or race in the world of work. We contribute to SDG11 (sustainable cities and communities) by making our city a more sustainable community through our participation in European projects. On the one hand, the LIFE CITYAdaP3 project which improves adaptation to climate change in the urban environment, and on the other hand, the URBACT CITIES4CSR project where we are working to improve slums.
Through our corporate social responsibility work, we are improving at all levels. As an institution, because the effort to ensure sustainability helps to improve our internal processes and to be appreciated more positively by society. Professionals feel encouraged to develop a career in a company that contributes to improving society and making it more sustainable. The work and effort invested in improving patient safety generates trust from society and from the patients who choose us.
