NewsHealthHospital Group chief executive is reappointed for another five yearsBy Staff Reporter – September 11, 2019 1294 Previous articleMan arrested in Limerick City murder caseNext articleLimerick Post Show | Fidget Feet Present Bingo Wings Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie Health Minister Simon Harris with UL Hospitals Group chief executive Professor Colette Cowan.Photo: Brian Arthur.PROFESSOR Colette Cowan has been re-appointed for another five years as chief executive of the University of Limerick Hospitals Group which incorporates University Hospital Limerick, University Maternity Hospital Limerick, Croom, Ennis, Nenagh and St John’s hospitals.Since taking on the role in 2014, she has overseen a budget increase from €267 million to €351 million and a workforce rise from 3,000 to 4,200.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Referring to the challenge of leading the thousands of hospital staff in Limerick, Clare and Tipperary over the next five years, Prof Cowan said the Group was looking forward to the development of the six regions announced by Health Minister Simon Harris as a key driver in delivering the Slaintecare health reforms.“The creation of integrated health regions present great challenges and great opportunities that we must all strive to meet as the promise of Slaintecare is to deliver truly transformative change for the people of the MidWest and the country at large.She said that while Slaintecare envisaged a move away from Ireland’s hospital-centric model to delivering more care in primary and community settings, the UL Hospitals Group would be busier than ever over the next five years, advancing its strategic objectives and developing more specialist services.“We were only just emerging from a deep recession when I was appointed as chief executive in 2014. The MidWest had been more seriously affected than other regions and the difficulties in the public finances had a serious adverse impact on the delivery of health services.“Over the last five years, however, UL Hospitals Group has delivered more care to more patients at a rate greater than the population increase in general.“For example, the number of attendances at our Emergency Department/Injury Units increased from 85,816 to 103,063 over the last five years and the number in-centre dialysis treatments in UHL grew from 10,412 to 17,232.“In spite of the challenging environment, the Group continues to increase its clinical activity, grow its workforce, enhance its academic profile and achieve crucial targets in quality and patient safety,”“We are also keenly aware that our capacity to meet demand is lacking in key areas and this is most manifest in the long waits for a bed faced by admitted patients and in growing outpatient waiting lists. Patient experience in these areas has been poor for many and I remain absolutely committed to improving this.” Vicky calls for right to die with dignity Advertisement Local backlash over Aer Lingus threat Facebook “Significant capital projects delivered over the last five years include the new Emergency Department, Leben Building (CF, breast, stroke and dermatology services), Dialysis Unit, Clinical Education and Research Centre at UHL; improved end-of-life care facilities in Ennis Hospital and University Maternity Hospital Limerick and the new ward block and Cataract Theatre at Nenagh Hospital.“More specialist clinics than ever before are being led in Ennis and Nenagh hospitals by consultants and an increasing number of advanced nurse and midwifery practitioners. And UL Hospitals Group was delighted to form its first Patient Council to give patients an active voice in service planning and delivery.“Over the last five years, UL Hospitals Group has consistently met or exceeded the national targets for average length of stay, day of surgery adUniversitymissions and readmission rates. Key quality indicators have shown excellent results in perinatal care and for in-hospital mortality rates for heart attack and stroke,” Prof Cowen concluded.

MILAN (AP) — Italian bank UniCredit says Andrea Orcel, one of Europe’s leading investment bankers, will replace outgoing CEO Jean Pierre Mustier, who offered his resignation this fall over strategic differences with the board. Orcel, a 57-year-old Italian, faces a shareholder vote before being confirmed in the role running Italy’s largest bank. Orcel spent 20 years at Merrill Lynch, where he helped manage some of the biggest bank mergers n Europe, including the merger of Credito Italiano and UniCredito to form UniCredit in 1998. He most recently ran the UBS Investment bank from 2014-2018 and was slated to take over Spanish bank Santander in 2018, but ended up in a dispute over compensation.
