European Union of Private Hospitals

June 2018 – A strong private sector

Europe is trying to renew the foreign policy and the partnership between Member States. Challenges concern economy perspectives and social protection. The growth in Eurozone is not sufficient to improve national budgets dedicated to healthcare. To optimize expenses, hospital performance indicators are required: quality, efficiency and sustainable development remain the major goals. During the Austrian Presidency Semester, UEHP is open to all initiatives demonstrating implication and coordination of the private sector. We present the first interview of a major European Hospital Group CEO, explaining the full involvement of professionals to implement today the care of tomorrow. Patient safety is the first attempt even uncertainty in health policy and economic regulation limits long term investment strategy. But the last decade demonstrated the development of the Hospital private sector in Europe. The recent BDPK annual meeting in Berlin with the participation of Jens Spahn, German Health Minister, confirms that Private Hospitals will offer modern and efficient solutions to all European citizens.
Dr Paul Garassus
President of UEHP
