London Bridge Hospital is proud to

be part of the award-winning HCA

International Group, winners of the

prestigious 2012 Laing & Buisson,

‘Laing’s Healthcare 20’ Award – the

second major award for HCA in

four months.

This latest award was presented

to HCA for exhibiting “excellent

performance over the past year” and,

according to the organisers,“perhaps

most importantly of all, influence in

shaping UK healthcare.”

HCA beat stiff competition from

45 of the country’s largest private

healthcare and service providers to

win the coveted award.

Michael Neeb, President and Chief

Executive Officer of HCA International

received the Award from Laing

& Buisson Director,William Laing.

Mr Neeb noted that this most

prestigious accolade reflects the

group’s pursuit of the highest standards

of patient care, and the continuing

dedication of Consultants, nurses,

specialist medical and support staff

in all of HCA’s hospitals, clinics,

diagnostic and outpatient centres.

“To win this particular award is a great

honour, proof that investing long-term

in our hospitals, the latest diagnostic

and treatment technology, staff training

and quality management results in

better outcomes for patients, and

higher overall standards,” said Mr Neeb.

“Everything we do is focused on trying

to provide the best possible care for

every patient, improving standards daily.

“We are driven by the need to provide

patients with the best and most up-to-

date facilities. For example, in the past

three years alone, we have re-invested

every pound of our profits in new

equipment – over £150 million.

“Whether it is the latest robotic surgical

procedures that help patients recover

much faster than before, or the latest

r dioth rapy machines that give patients

a better chance of beating cancer, we

see the benefits of this investment every

day, and so do our patients.

“Our hospitals are the only private

hospitals in the UK that can manage the

complete care pathway of patients in all

the most challenging areas of medicine,

including cancer, cardiac care and

neurosciences.”

Following the presentation of the Award,

Imperial College London Professor of

Health Policy, Nick Bosanquet, praised

HCA’s role in strengthening London’s

reputation as a centre for world-class

complex medicine.“HCA’s substantial

and consistent investment in its hospitals,

staff and clinical technology has been

a major influence in strengthening

London’s global reputation as a medical

centre of excellence,” he said. “HCA

offers the very latest treatments and

takes great care of its patients.This is

a compelling and customer-focused

combination of skills.”
