Goals and Objectives

The core objective of the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital is to deliver high quality services in its numerous specialities in a safe environment. The hospital not only serves a local catchment population, but also provides secondary and tertiary referral services in its regional and national specialities. Closely linked to its service objectives, it is required to further consolidate and improve its teaching and research activities as a major academic teaching hospital with a superb national profile.

The following is a general summary of the hospital's high-level strategic goals and objectives. These objectives must be developed taking into account the recently announced health service reforms.
