European Union of Private Hospitals


EU does not crack under pressure

After facing such a difficult spring with the COVID-19 crisis and the lockdown of European citizens, the EU is still at work during summertime. Major projects are currently under discussion: a €750bn recovery package is scheduled, and more precisely, regarding the healthcare sector, the new health program EU4HEALTH which engages €10bn for the next 5 years. Furthermore, the Green Deal will channel new programs including economic incentives relating to the safeguard of the planet and specific actions against cancer are also under way.

UEHP is also at work calling attention to the relevant role and experience of European private hospitals in the fight against the virus but also to the need of organized coordination between actors. But we are more and more concerned by the future of the EU under the same objectives. Sustainable health systems require new solutions including e-health and smart hospitals, able to offer the best access to patients and limit unnecessary cost. Private hospitals have also taken positive action in the area of Green Hospitals reflecting the social goals of Ecology. The services we provide are also perfectly synchronized with the EU perspective against cancer.
The private hospital sector and EU policy makers share the same motivation: find relevant solutions to improve patient care and to ensure the sustainability of healthcare systems. Let´s work together!

Dr Paul Garassus
President of UEHP
