What is the role of a Hospital Manager?

The basic role of a hospital manager is quite similar to the role of a hotel Manager, the only difference being one manages a hospital or a chain of hospitals in the prior while one manages a hotel or a chain of hotels in the latter. A hospital manager is responsible for several things pertaining to the hospital such as,

  • The general image well-being of the hospital
  • Catering to the needs of the hospital doctors as well as patients
  • Buying new equipment necessary for the hospital
  • Hiring or Firing of the staff of the hospital
  • Managing the inflow and outflow of the cash in the hospital
  • Dealing with the lawsuits against the hospital or a particular doctor of the hospital with the aid of the legal department of the hospital
  • Conducting meetings and setting goals in order to manage the hospital business properly with respect to accounts and finances
  • Getting required sponsorships and support for the hospital and its staff
  • Getting the required support for the hospital from the community as well as government, etc.

In these ways, a hospital manager is required for the smooth functioning of the hospital as a whole.
