INTRODUCTION

Paradise hospital was established in 1995 and has been working since then as a for-profit hospital. Since its start, the hospital has never done anything to increase the service value for the customer. The administration of the hospital is not very familiar with the process of increasing service values and they have decided to assign this responsibility to the new hospital administrator.

SERVICE VALUE TO CUSTOMER

In health care industry, the service value to the customers means the outcome of their health related problems i.e. how well they are treated, how well they are informed and how fast the whole treatment process is. Service value, for customers, in health care industry is basically the value of life that the doctors have for their patients. Therefore, value is always defined around the customer in the health care industry. Health is the most important factor in anybody’s life and no person feels like compromising with health related issues. Thus, the value that they attach to health care services are quite high and mean a lot to them if the health care centre provides them the right information, the right treatment at the right time.
