Ramsay Health Care Limited Annual Report 2016

FY16 Brownfield highlights 10 RAMSAY HEALTH CARE LIMITED CHRISTOPHER REX MANAGING DIRECTOR in France has made significant strides in clinical trials and following on from their excellent results and publications, Ramsay is pursuing this approach globally. To this end, we centralised our clinical trials in Australia and, in 2017, will roll out a program of clinical trials to our 10 largest cancer care hospitals. Innovation and investment in our facilities and research allows us to continuously improve the quality of the organisation and patient care. With the Paul Ramsay Foundation as a major shareholder, we are uniquely placed to benefit from the opportunity to drive increased investment in research and improving patient outcomes, which will benefit not only Ramsay Health Care’s patients but the wider community. I am pleased to report that the Paul Ramsay Foundation will make an annual $5 million contribution to the Ramsay Hospital Research Foundation for medical research and improving patient outcomes. A full report on these initiatives will be contained in next year’s annual report. Outlook All regions are experiencing ageing and growing populations, a proliferation of chronic disease and the emergence of medical innovation and targeted therapies for the most challenging diseases, and with these comes greater demand for healthcare. We continue to invest in our facilities and our technology to ensure that we can attract the best specialists and meet the growing needs of the communities we serve. As the leading private provider in Australia and France and one of the largest private hospital operators in the world, it also behoves us to invest in $300 million Brownfield developments research and quality programs that will drive better outcomes for our patients. We look forward to making enormous strides in this area in the coming year. At the same time we are also looking into the future about how we best support patients beyond the hospital walls and the community pharmacy strategy will enable us to do that. Ramsay Health Care continues to investigate other opportunities internationally to grow our business, building on the success we have had thus far in the global healthcare marketplace. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Board of Ramsay Health Care, the Ramsay Global Executive team and all our doctors and staff around the world for their support and commitment during the year. 26 New operating theatres 500 New beds
