HCA Healthcare UK named "Private Hospital Group of the Year"
16 June 2016
HCA Healthcare UK was last night named Private Hospital Group of the Year at the HealthInvestor Awards 2016.
Fighting off stiff competition from seven others, the world’s largest private hospital group was recognised for its commitment to enhancing quality of care for patients and driving continuous innovation in the sector.
The judges were impressed by HCA Healthcare UK’s £50m investment in specialist equipment as well as new facility openings at The Shard in London, which will offer thelatest medical technology, a personalised approach and an extensive range of outpatient specialties and The Manchester Institute of Health & Performance (MIHP), a world-class centre for treatment, diagnosis and research in health, delivering programmes for the local community as well as supporting elite athletes.
These new investments reflect the move towards providing access to the best consultants, care and services in an outpatient setting, as people increasingly opt for wide-ranging treatments and flexible ways to pay, including self-pay.
This award comes hot on the heels of HCA being named "International Cancer Centre of the Year" by the International Medical Tourism Journal.
CEO of HCA Healthcare UK, Mike Neeb said "Providing the best quality care and services to our patients is at the heart of everything that we do, and our extensive investment in our facilities over the past year reflects that. I'm delighted that we have been named Private Hospital Group of the Year reflecting the exceptional care that our exceptional team delivers."
Maintaining the highest standards, driving growth and ensuring that patients and consultants choose HCA requires a commitment to continuous improvement. HCA Healthcare UK's success is built on sustained investment with over £500m invested into its facilities and people in the last decade; with a focus on new technology and innovations in complex care to further improve standards of excellence.
As the only UK private hospital provider with the highest level of intensive care in all of our hospitals, we can provide care for patients of all ages and treat everything from the most straightforward conditions to the most complex and often life threatening illnesses.
