Strategy

The strategy of Tays emphasises serving each patient with dignity and providing them with safe care and also ensuring a good service experience for the patient and customer. The strategy was updated in December 2020. 

Our ethical principles

  • Good care
  • Mutual respect
  • Appreciation of competence
  • Responsibility

Our target state

  • We measure customer satisfaction by NPS, a recommendation index.
  • We are the quickest university hospital to provide access to treatment (median time of access to treatment).
  • We will also become increasingly popular outside the Pirkanmaa Region – freedom of choice, insurance companies, payment commitments, partnerships.
  • We don’t drive growth at the expense of effectiveness.
  • We believe in ourselves so much that we always also tell patients about other treatment location options.
