GOVERNING BODY AND MANAGEMENT
The Board of Directors and Executive management of Berkeley Vale Private Hospital believes that each individual in the community is entitled to enjoy a reasonable state of physical, mental, and social well being.
We also believe that members of the community are entitled to receive high quality, cost-effective health care services at the time that those services are needed and that those services can be made available at a reasonable cost.
In order to provide an environment in which high-quality care services can be delivered, the hospital must be well equipped and it must be staffed by qualified and/or experienced health care workers who keep abreast of developments in their respective professions. We believe that teamwork is important in the provision of health care services and that hospital staff, management, visiting practitioners, and all allied health professionals should work together to efficiently provide effective services.
Basic to all other beliefs is the knowledge that the patient is the most important person in the hospital and as such is entitled to the most courteous, high quality, and attentive treatment we can provide.
The governing body of Ramsay Health Care delegates the operational management of BVPH to the executive team based at BVPH.
