European Union of Private Hospitals


Hope is back!

The recent vote by the European Parliament increasing the #EU4Health budget and aiming to reduce inequalities in accessing health care, is a sign of hope. The latest announcement by a major Big pharma group regarding the possibility to soon have a safe and effective coronavirus vaccine available is also a major new hope.
After such a long and difficult year 2020 which saw health systems and economies across the world under pressure, welfare states close to collapse and the world´s population threatened, good news concerning medical strategy to limit the pandemic risks inspire and strengthen our actions.
European Hospitals, all together, with the total involvement of their workforce, work hard every day towards saving patients´ lives and we certainly cannot forget the health and care workers, our colleagues, who lost their life during this unexpected fight against COVID.
We must remain prudent of course but public and private research will probably be able to offer relevant solutions in a few months’ time and, until then, public and private hospitals will continue their dedicated work towards saving people´s lives.
Hope is back, and we know that a great energy will be required to face the social reconstruction which has been shaken by the virus. UEHP is at work, ready to face all these challenges in the EU27.

Dr Paul Garassus
President of UEHP
