In the presence of HSH Prince Albert, Mr Patrick Bini, Director of the Princess Grace Hospital, on Tuesday presented his New Year wishes to all the staff and pointed out the successes of the previous year, which he described as “an intense year full of satisfaction”.
In particular, the new hospital made great advances in its major expansion programme, with the deviation of the Avenue Pasteur and the construction of a car park providing 534 places.
On July 6, the extension of the Crèche was opened by Prince Albert and Princess Charlene.
During the year many Monegasques took on positions of responsibility, such as the Head of the Check-up Unit, the Deputy Chief of Staff of the CTS, the Senior Health Officer of the children’s centre and the two Directors of Care.
A slight deficit of 0.5 percent of the budget was more than offset by the continued popularity of the institution and an increase of more than two percent in admissions and five percent in consultations.
A high patient satisfaction rate was recorded thanks to the 6,084 exit questionnaires completed, with 91.6 percent of scores greater than or equal to 8 out of 10 concerning the patients’ stay in hospital.
The Sovereign Prince expressed his great attachment to the institution and the people who make it live every day.
Also in attendance were Minister of Health and Social Affairs , Mr Stéphane Valeri, André Garino, and the Chief of the Prince’s Cabinet, Mr Georges Lisimachio.
