The Centre for Hospital Management was founded in 1994 by the Bertelsmann Stiftung, Gütersloh and is attached as an institute to the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster. At the initiative of founders Reinhard and Liz Mohn, the CKM performs various projects in the healthcare sector and in this follows the philosophy of the Bertelsmann Foundation to take up social issues, to develop exemplary solutions with experts from science and practice, and to implement these models in select areas of the community. In this framework the tasks of the CKM include substansive and methodological support of health institutions, the development of the professions in this sector to better deal with issues of management, as well as the practical research and teaching.

Our objective is to identify ways in which tried and tested management methods from industry, trade and services industry can be used in hospitals and other health institutions. We face the task of bringing into harmony seemingly incompatible topics: the improvement quality while lowering costs.
