MSPH ensures the safe, efficient and effective functioning of the hospital through the development and implementation of appropriate governing policies, guidelines and programs. This governance system enables continuous improvement in the quality of care and service provided by the hospital through the implementation and maintenance of effective quality management programs and financial and operational strategic plans.
Both corporate and clinical governance is of utmost importance to MSPH and this is achieved through the effective operation of the following governance committees:
Board of Directors (BOD) – highest level of governance and is responsible for providing effective leadership of the hospital and ensuring compliance of all corporate and clinical responsibilities. BOD is committed to the provision of the highest quality health care by ensuring an effective Quality & Continuous Improvement Program and the attainment and maintenance of accreditation to the National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards.
Medical Advisory Committee (MAC) – highest level of clinical governance with representatives from the executive team and Visiting Medical Officers (VMOs) and surgeons. MAC is responsible for ensuring that all consumers of MSPH receive the highest standard of medical care from registered and credentialed medical practitioners. Importantly, the MAC is committed to the Quality & Continuous Improvement Program and monitoring the clinical standards of care to ensure patient centred care is delivered throughout the hospital.
Leadership Committee – provides management and leadership for the hospital and executes the day to day operations of the organisation. Responsible for maintaining and improving the quality of patient care, promoting and supporting patient centred care, providing a safe environment, and monitoring, reviewing and evaluating the Quality & Continuous Improvement Program.
