About HMI

The Health Management Institute of Ireland (HMI) is the professional body for healthcare managers across all sectors of the health service in the Republic of Ireland. We are a membership organisation. Our primary aim is the continuous development of standards of management competence and practice. The HMI meets the needs of the modern healthcare manager through informing, educating and involving its members and stakeholders in professional development and networking activities.

We achieve this through:

  • Keeping you informed and up to date with our online Journal Health Manager and regular email updates

  • Networking opportunities at our annual conference and regional meetings

  • Recognition of your status as a manager in the health services

  • Recognition and acknowledgement of the work of our colleagues in the healthcare sector with the HMI Leaders Award

  • The provision of high quality training and learning opportunities

  • The provision of high standard professional services

  • Membership of a professional organisation with links to European and UK health associations

Regional Structure

HMI is a national organisation with a regional structure. There are four regions:

Each region has a committee in place which is responsible for organising local activities such as meetings and promoting the work of the Institute. Each committee has a Chair and Secretary and is sponsored by a HMI Council member who gives guidance and support. All members are encouraged to become involved at regional level or to suggest topics of local relevance for debate and discussion.
