The opening ceremony of the Master’s Program in Hospital Management today is a clear demonstration of the cooperation and development of both units. Military Hospital 175 is 48 years old and throughout its history of development, especially in the past ten years, when Military Hospital 175 was in harmony with the development and integration trend of Military Hospitals in the whole army. One point that we have to change is to be financially autonomous and accept all patients for medical examination and treatment, because, currently, the amount of medical examination and treatment under the health insurance and medical services account for 85% to 90% of patients. Therefore, the story of Hospital Management in all aspects related to Quality Management, Human Resource Management, Pharmaceutical Equipment and especially Financial Management are issues that concern us. Therefore, I hope that through this course, thesis topics can create products for Military Hospital 175 and for society.”

From the management problems at Military Hospital 175, we will look at many different aspects, different topics, and find values and products to change the quality of patient service. First of alltly, there are legal regulations, technical processes and management, human resources management, and quality management. The second issue is the development of science and technology and the third is the innovation of the entire patient service network. To do that, what we need is to change our thinking about Hospital Management. Therefore, I hope that through this class, students will acquire knowledge about hospital management to create real products as well as contribute to building the economy, health system and Military Hospital 175 better and better”.
