Effective Hospital Management: A Practical Management System for Hospital Managers at Any Level
This book proposes that hospitals should aim not only to heal or rehabilitate the sick, but should also teach people how to live a healthy life. The management system described can be used by hospital managers at any level to improve performance and results following a team approach where various needed skills are added when needed. The key to success is to have team members and staff whose competencies complement each other. Mastering hospital management is a lifetime quest, but one can begin to use and benefit from the proven management methods described. Continuing improvements are achieved by having a team committed to continuous improvement, whose skills reinforce one another, reading recommended books, learning from visiting other hospitals, and talking to colleagues in those hospitals.
