Study visit to Lithuania in May 2018

HOSPEEM visited its Lithuanian member organisation Lithuanian National Association of Healthcare Organizations (NAHCO) on 25 May 2018 in Vilnius. HOSPEEM had the opportunity to visit the Lithuanian Parliament and one hospital, a member of NAHCO, the Republican Vilnius University Hospital in Vilnius. The non-profit hospital is the biggest emergency health care hospital in Lithuania and the second largest hospital in capital Vilnius. At the Parliament, a meeting was arranged with Ms Irena Šiaulienė, Deputy Speaker of the Board of the Seimas [the Lithuanian Parliament] and Member of the Lithuanian Parliament. The meeting was also attended by Antanas Vinkus, Member of the Lithuanian Parliament, former Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Social Security and Labour of the Republic of Lithuania and former Ambassador of Lithuania to Russia, Estonia and Latvia as well as Prof. Dr. Vinsas Janušonis, President of Lithuanian National Association of Healthcare Organizations and Dr. Vidmantas Žegunis. The visit at the Parliament provided the opportunity to discuss among others the migration and fair recruitment of health professionals and the 100-year anniversary of Lithuania.

At the hospital, the HOSPEEM Secretariat met among others Dr. Algimantas Pamerneckas, Director General, his advisor Rimvydas Toločka, Head of Emergency Medicine Department, Asta Jonaitienė and Dr. Vidmantas Žegunis. While visiting the hospital’s emergency and triage unit, the hospitals’ management and human resources, their functioning and activities were discussed. The meeting also provided the opportunity to exchange good practices from Lithuania and other HOSPEEM members. HOSPEEM would like to express its sincere thanks to Sigitas Griskonis, Lithuanian National Association of Healthcare Organizations, the representatives of the Lithuanian Parliament and the staff of the hospitals for the warm welcome and the enriching and fruitful exchange.
