Executive Director's Message
Healthcare is a major concern for countries around the globe. While the developing countries are struggling to provide even the basic health services, the developed nations are struggling to keep the healthcare costs affordable. Growing demand because of an aging population, change in disease mix and rising costs is prompting health care organizations and policymakers to seek solutions beyond their boundaries to tackle these complex challenges.
It has been rightly said that healthcare facilities are unpredictable with changing medical technology and evolving healthcare delivery systems. With new entrants, increased private sector participation, entry of health insurance, competition, there is a greater emphasis on quality of care and accreditation; all leveraging the growth of healthcare consultancy firms. Perhaps, the biggest factor fuelling the growth is the realisation by stakeholders that special skill-sets are required for orchestrating any healthcare project from concept to commissioning.
Healthcare demand in GCC Countries – Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and United Arab Emirates will face an unparalleled and unprecedented demand over the course of the next two decades. Population growth, aging population and health risk factors are the main factors driving healthcare demand in GCC countries. According to estimates the total healthcare spending in the region will reach US$ 60 billion in 2025, up from US$ 12 billion today. No other region in the world faces such rapid growth in demand with simultaneous need to realign its healthcare systems to be able to treat the disorders of affluence.
It is a Herculean task to visualize hospitals for tomorrow since the impacting dimensions, that will evolve the future hospitals, are multifactorial and not always predictable. Eurohealth Systems will be able to balance the ‘need list’ of the professionals, the ‘want list’ of the patients and the community and provide effective, holistic, ethical, standardized, acceptable, safe and secure healthcare institutions.
We look forward to partner with you in building futuristic healthcare delivery models and hospitals.
