25th Congress of the European Association of Hospital Managers

10th to 13th September 2014, Berlin, Germany

“The Healthcare Industry – Our Responsibility Towards People” is the keynote theme of the 25th Congress of the European Association of Hospital Managers (EAHM). Health and economics form a particularly sensitive pair of terms. Responsibly harmonising both in the interest of patients – this is the task of hospital managers throughout Europe.

All hospitals must respond to this challenge. If not, they will no longer be able to meet their responsibility of providing high quality care for patients. They need partners for this – other hospitals, rehabilitation clinics and physicians in private practices, care facilities, but also companies in the industry, in the service sector, and more.
