Bachelors of Business Administration in Hospital Administration

Overview Of The Program

A large number of private hospitals and clinics have come up all over the country. With increasing emphasis on quality of health care and patient satisfaction there is a tremendous need for persons with a professional qualification in Hospital Management.

Hospital Management is a new concept in the management stream. Gone are the days when a senior doctor would generally be responsible for the role of a hospital manager. But in today’s era of specialization, the term hospital has undergone sea-changes and many categories related to medical sciences and hospitals have been revamped completely. We have ordinary hospitals, specialty hospitals and even super-specialty hospitals depending upon the kinds of services they render to the public and the number of people they cater to.

As a Hospital Administrator, one has to be responsible for the overall organization and management of the hospital to ensure its smooth functioning with the objective of ensuring the complete satisfaction of the patient. One has to coordinate between the various departments of the hospital, ensure that all the equipment is functional, that there is a smooth flow of medical supplies and above all the required standards of cleanliness are maintained. Besides, one deals with the employees and financial matters. The emphasis is on quality, efficiency and cost containment. The challenge is to deliver the highest quality care at the lowest cost. It entails giving 100% of your time to quality in-patient care, lowering the length of stay, decreasing resource utilization, and working with the medical and administrative staff to coordinate all aspects of in-house care. For the smooth functioning of a hospital, qualified professionals are required. As a consequence, The BBA Hospital Administration program has been developed to churn out professional hospital mangers. Such individuals are by far exceedingly well-equipped to face the growing challenges and cater to the specific requirements of modern-day hospitals. Hospital Management courses are not only for science graduates but are also open to non-science graduates.

Career Prospects : Most job opportunities in the field of Hospital Management are in hospitals, but one can also find openings in health agencies, laboratories and other health and allied services. Government hospitals as well as private hospitals employ Hospital administrators/ managers. Employment opportunities in this field are plenty. Fresh degree holders may start their professional career as assistant hospital administrators or as managers of non-health departments like finance. One can find employment in large corporate and public sector hospitals, international and national healthcare organizations and health insurance companies, College and Universities, Healthcare Portals, Nursing Homes, Mental Health Facilities, Pharmaceuticals and Hospital Supply Firms, Medical Software Companies and Hospital Consulting Firms.
