Let us recapitulate what we have discussed so far. We started with an introduction to career as Hospital Administrator, and the various opportunities available to serve as administrator in the field of Health.

Then we discussed how the name ‘HOSPITAL’ originated and various definitions of hospital.

After this , tried to know more about hospital, like Hospital system, peculiarities of Hospital as an Organisation, with passage of time how the role and function of the hospital is changing(ref) and challenges being faced by the modern hospitals(ref).

Finally we tried to acknowledge the qualities and roles of a Hospital Administrator.

Now we will prepare the Idol of the Hospital and ornament it with various services step by step.

We prepare Idols of Ma Durga, Ma Saraswati, Lord Ganesh and so on, then we decorate them with ornaments and Instruments to give them a complete shape before we start Worshiping.Similarly the Idol of the Hospital starts with planning for a new hospital.

The planning of a hospital begins with formation of a planning team. What is this planning team? What is the necessity of such a team and how it functions?

Planning of a new hospital starts from selection of site to commissioning of the hospital. There are various important steps in hospital planning and each step has its own importance.

Therefore, we will discuss step by step how a new hospital is commissioned from its stage of planning in the today’s presentation.

Hospital As an Organisation

After knowing the hospital as a system, let us know how hospital functions as an organisation.

Organising is the process of grouping the various activities in to workable units and connecting them through authority, control and co-ordination so as to perform identified jobs for achieving organisation objectives.

Every organisation has a structure called ‘Organogram’ and the structure varies according to function.

Each organisation has distinct structure, objective and function, therefore differs from each other.

Organisation structure forms the basic skeleton of the organisation, which are:-

a) Helps to identify in consistencies and complexities in the organisation structure.

b) Helps to identify major line of decision making authority.

c) It indicates the employees there position, status and role in the organisation.

Each organisation, therefore has its own peculiarity to ensure its effectiveness.Similarly hospital is a social organisation and a rational combination of the activities of a number of persons with different level of knowledge and skills for achieving a common goal of patient care through a hierarchy of authority and responsibility.

Hospital organisation is very peculiar and differs from other organisations. Hence called a ‘MATRIX’ organisation.

To know what are the peculiarities of hospital, how it functions as an organisation, how it differs from other organisations, let us see this simple presentation.
