UL Hospitals Group: Strategy 2018 – 2022

UL Hospitals Group strives to be a valued, trusted and leading provider of excellence in healthcare.

Our vision is to be patient-centred, clinically-integrated, team-based and research-driven. Our 2018 – 2022 Corporate Strategy provides the roadmap to work significantly towards that vision.

Our aim has always been focused on delivering timely access to high-quality safe care. We recognise that new challenges will emerge in pursuit of this goal and over the lifetime of this strategy.

We have used this strategic planning process to consider:

  • The needs and expectations of the people we serve.
  • The environment in which we work.
  • Our role and responsibility to build a better health service for the Midwest and Ireland.
