The nature of hospitals as organizations have been diverse and varied in India. Nursing homes, small private hospitals as well as multi specialty tertiary care hospitals have emerged in large numbers over the last few years. However there is an absence of homogeneity in their functioning or regulation. This can be brought about by way of enhanced governance training and development of Health Care Managers who can play a crucial role in setting the background for this change.
With this focus and challenge in mind the Center for Health Management Studies and Research has been set up at the Bharati Vidyapeeth Deemed University, Pune. The Center for Health Management Studies and Research has rapidly grown into a specialized training facility for a wide variety of caders related to Hospital Administration, with a focus on patient centered care.
