Hospital Management

What does a hospital manager do?

Responsible for the overall running of hospitals with the potential to impact upon and change health care delivery. Working with all specialities, coordinating and directing the work of others can be challenging and you may have to make unpopular decisions. Grades range from a service manager all the way to Chief Executive. Not to be confused with public health and primary health care management, although the former has a clear path and the later has several similar career steps. Good future prospects and opportunities to take your skills abroad are welcomed.
