Preventing avoidable hospitalizations via community outreach and use of technology

Henny van Laarhoven was first as hospital director and later as building director involved in the development of the very innovative Zuyderland Medical Park (ZMC) in the South of Holland. ZMC was designed as a very innovative hospital for the 21st century. To achieve this, the very latest techniques and technologies were used in the field of information, medical technology, and logistics/robotic logistics. Process innovation and defined new ways of working were the drivers behind the program of demands for the new departments. Zuyderland includes one of the biggest hospitals in Holland and Care and Homecare organisations. She is now responsible for the strategic construction affairs and reallocation of departments as result of the new Zuyderland Strategy: “Delivering Care as much at Home as Possible”. She is since 2009 also working as an international consultant advising organisations, how to change processes, that form the prelude to an innovative design brief for the renovation or new construction of hospitals or other healthcare institutions.
