About Hospital Administration

Indian healthcare sector is growing at a rapid rate. It has been estimated that till 2022, the sector will grow at a cumulative average rate of 16% and will touch US$ 372 billion revenue mark (IBEF). The sector will create 7.4 million jobs till 2022 (KPMG India). The majority of these revenues and jobs will be created by the hospital sector that constitutes 70% of the healthcare sector. With surging growth in this sector, the demand for professionally trained hospital managers is also on the rise. A well-managed hospital leads to superior quality health outcomes, and satisfied patients. Currently, in India, there is a severe paucity of professionally trained hospital administrators. Very few academic institutes are focused on producing professional hospital administrators for our settings. Lack of a professional hospital administrator does not allow medical staff to solely focus on medical care. This may result in inefficiency and poorer outcomes for the hospital. Lack of trained administrators also results in inadequate second line of leadership in many hospitals and poses a serious challenge to the sustainability of the hospitals. Thus, a professional hospital administrator has a pivotal role in a growing healthcare sector that is driven to serve the people.
