If the organizational structure of a hospital is not planned and coordinated, there can be disastrous and potentially life-threatening consequences. Therefore, hospitals need to have a clearly defined and precise organizational structure to ensure that no mistakes are made during the healthcare provision and administrative process.
Comprehensive and holistic organizational structures can help hospital employees understand their day-to-day responsibilities, facilitate decision-making, and revitalize employee performance and productivity.

The board of directors is a governing regulatory body that helps hospitals make higher-level organizational decisions. The board of directors for hospitals usually consists of medical experts and influential members of local communities. Hospitals that are affiliated or overseen by universities may also include teaching faculty on the board of directors.

2) Executive management
Executives are responsible for successfully performing the hospital’s day-to-day managerial decision-making. A hospital executive’s organizational role is usually extremely specified depending on which specific function they are responsible for. This includes financial resource allocation, medical executive decision making and administrative operations.
3) Hospital and departmental administration
Department administrators are responsible for reporting to hospital executives about the specific daily departmental operations of the organization and carrying out decisions made by executive management. These include supervising the provision of emergency healthcare services, overseeing supply and purchase of necessary medical equipment, monitoring departmental surgical activities and much more.
4) Patient care service management
Patient care managers are hospital employees that oversee and manage healthcare service providers. This includes creating employee schedules, ensuring that the overall healthcare provision process is carried out appropriately, confirming that the hospital complies with legal, regulatory requirements and addressing patient concerns.
5) Patient service providers
Patient service providers include all employees that directly provide medical care to patients, including doctors, nurses, laundry workers, therapists and more.
