Experience Day 2018
A warm word of welcome!
To care, cure and communicate with head, heart and soul.
Highest level clinical care and (basic) care close to people. This combination makes the Albert Schweitzer a unique hospital. With four locations, the Albert Schweitzer Hospital is the leading healthcare partner for residents of the Zuid-Holland-Zuid region. For young and promising medical and nursing professionals, we are an attractive (non-academic) training hospital.
Our motto is ‘hospital with head, heart and soul’. It is inspired by our namesake, the world-famous dr. Albert Schweitzer, who dedicated his whole life to the service of humanitarian care. ‘Reverence for life’ was the motivation of this unique physician and philosopher. His ideology is still alive and an example for us and many others.
We want to improve ourselves every day. We do not have to be the best hospital, although the Algemeen Dagblad newspaper has awarded us this title twice in recent years. We mainly strive to be the best ‘improvement hospital’. Where we continuously learn, control, improve and innovate, in our pursuit of optimal quality, safety and hospitality.
We consider our active participation in the International Forum on Quality & Safety in Healthcare as an excellent opportunity to exchange ideas with healthcare professionals from all over the world and to learn from each other! We open our doors with great pleasure to a varied, international group and we proudly present our best practices in diverse fields.
We consider it an honour that you have chosen to come to our hospital for a look behind the scenes on 2 May. We want to surprise and inspire you during your visit. We are, of course, extremely curious about your own insights, experiences and motivations. It's going to be a wonderful day. We hope that your visit to the oldest city in Holland will stay with you for a long time.
Mr. Peter van der Meer,
Chairman of the Board of Directors
Albert Schweitzer Hospital
