Hospitals for Humanity is a nonprofit organization designed to decrease barriers to health care for people living in the least developed countries in the world. Our goal is to provide medical attention, thereby improving the quality of life for those who are in the greatest need. Through the construction of modern medical facilities and organizing Medical Mission Initiatives (MMI), Hospitals for Humanity strives to build a lasting infrastructure to carry out sustained improvements in the global health care delivery system.
Many hospitals and clinics in economically distressed countries operate without basic medical supplies, prescription drugs, or laboratory equipment. Hospitals for Humanity, in partnership with volunteer medical professionals and in-country investors, offers sustainable and relevant solutions focused on improving access to quality health care in the developing world. To this end, Hospitals for Humanity is committed to long-term community development, including helping to build state-of-the-art medical facilities and upgrading existing hospitals and clinics to adequately meet the needs of under-served people facing the challenges of poor health and disease.
Hospitals for Humanity sources local health care providers to manage these new medical facilities. Our hospital administrators and physicians provide the expertise needed to guide the local health care providers and provide them with all the necessary tools required to operate the facilities independently. Our experts help train local health care workers to enhance and perfect their skills in the latest treatment modalities and protocols to better serve their patients.
Hospitals for Humanity sets the foundation for the administrative and health care aspects of these new medical facilities. At Hospitals for Humanity we believe self-sufficiency and effective operations are achieved through best practices in setting and managing health care resources. These best practices include: establishing a culture of accountability, using comparative benchmarks, setting accurate high-performance department budgets, managing expenses, monitoring variances, and when needed, implementing corrective action plans.
Ultimately, it is Hospitals for Humanity’s goal to remove structural barriers to quality health care. With time, effort, and cooperation we can make an enormous difference in thousands of lives.
