Our Guiding Principle for the Academic Health System is:
Each institution will remain legally independent but there will be a requirement for a strategy across the multiple stakeholders to support the achievement of our goals. Some of these resources will become available through investment, efficiency savings and restructuring within organizations and the rest will come through the different organizations’ funding mechanisms.
Within five years, the Academic Health System will:
- Have the best and safest clinical care in the region
- Be recognized as the leading health research organization in the region
- Attract, train and develop a highly educated, skilled and motivated workforce, fully equipped to support the delivery of world-class research and healthcare
- Have developed an international reputation for the quality of our staff and our innovative practice
- Be the employer of choice for healthcare professionals and biomedical scientists in the region
- Be embedded in the community and will be the most socially engaged health system in the region
- Adopt international best practice in information technology to support our mission
We will also develop a sustainable financial strategy across the multiple stakeholders to support the achievement of our goals within the next two years.
