More than half of the 1,600 people who are registered with Barnabascan Health in Dublin’s East End say they have health problems or chronic illnesses that they do not know about, according to the Irish Times.
Barnabasca Health Care, a subsidiary of Barnabasa Health, is part of a health care network that has grown out of the Dublin-based multinationals health care company, which was founded in 1869 and has a turnover of €10bn.
The company has a staff of more than 7,000 people in the Irish capital.
In an interview with the Irish Independent, the company’s CEO, Dr. John Murray, said the network’s success is based on its focus on the health of the individual, which he described as “the core of what we do”.
“The core of Barnacas is our ability to care for people with chronic illness and those who need treatment and care,” Murray said.
“And that’s why we have a very dedicated team of carers, nurses and doctors, and we also have a dedicated team for the patients.”
Murray said the health network has been successful because it has “a very high proportion of very active and dedicated people” who want to work.
“We don’t need people who have been in a nursing home, for example, who don’t want to go to work because they can’t keep up with the demand, or people who can’t do it,” he said.
But Murray said he hopes the network can become a model for the rest of the country.
“I’m very optimistic, but I am also aware that we are not quite there yet,” he added.
“There are a lot of people who would be very happy to join us and have a place in the health system.”
The network is a joint venture between the three Irish public hospitals.
The health network’s website describes it as “a private, publicly funded and operated, community-based health care service” that provides medical care to those who have a chronic illness.
“Barnabas is a public health service in partnership with Irish public and private hospitals.
Its mission is to provide care for patients in need of intensive care, mental health care, medical and dental care, and other services,” it says.
The site includes a video on the “What you need to know” page, which explains how to apply for a job at the health service.
In addition to providing care for the sick, Barnabasis also provides treatment for people who suffer from other health problems and has specialised in helping people with disabilities, Murray said in an interview.
He added that the health services are being “reimagined” and will now focus on providing a holistic care model, with the health networks role to “balance out” with other parts of the Irish healthcare system.
Murray said it’s important to understand how the health infrastructure works in the rest-of-the-world.
“The health system in Europe and the US and elsewhere is very much like a giant health system,” he told the Irish newspaper.
“You can see where the hospitals are, where the medical systems are, what services are provided.
We’re not like that in Ireland.”
Murray told the paper that he hopes to see the network become “a national hub” for the health and social care systems.
“That’s what we want to do, is to grow the whole network and create a national hub where the people in need can access care.”
The Irish Times reported that the Irish health network is already working with a large number of businesses, including the city’s biggest pharmacy chain, the Royal Irish Constabulary and the city of Dublin’s Royal Hospital.
The newspaper quoted the company as saying that it will be looking to partner with local businesses in order to grow.
Murray told RTÉ that the network was not seeking to replace other health care systems in the country, but to provide “an integrated system of care” for people.
“It’s really important to look at the whole picture of how we are going to build our system and the role that we will play in the healthcare system of the future,” he explained.
