The Hospital admits more than 10,000 patients per year and the Emergency Department attends more than 32,000 patients per year.
The hospital’s multi-year policy plan was created by the cooperation of several disciplines within the hospital. First, the wishes of many stakeholders were listed. Subsequently, a great deal of employees, from medical specialists to nurses, from the board of directors to managers, contributed to the elaboration of a clear multi-year policy plan.
As a bright dot on the horizon the hospital wants to accomplish , the following ambition:
“To belong to the best hospitals of the region, providing regional and selected superregional patient care.”
The following explanation compliments the ambition:
“Best”: provide effective (professional), safe, and efficient (cost-conscious) integrated care.
“Hospital”: class regional hospital with selected superregional functions.
“Region”: the Caribbean, including Venezuela and Colombia.
How we want to achieve this is expressed in our vision and reads as follows:
“We, HOH, provide reliable care to our patients. Together with our partners, we do so professionally, in a patient-oriented way, within a sound management.”
The realization of the Multi-Year Policy Plan 2014-2017 of the hospital is a team effort and therefore our motto is: “Hunto miho”… Better together!
