Recognizing the importance of hospital service, as an economic service, even the corporate sector is entering into this segment investing huge amount of money and in confirmity with the mindset of the private enterprise. It has become vital to think of effective utilization of this resource, with a view to provide better service to the users and to make a reasonable rate of return on the investment for the investors.

The need for professionally trained hospital managers is being increasingly felt in Iindian hospitals, whether private or public, new or old, large or small metropolitan or not.
