Santeon is a Dutch hospital group in which seven top-medical hospitals openly cooperate with the aim of improving medical care through continuous renewal. The Catharina Hospital is a member of Santeon.
Improving medical care
Although the quality of our care compared to other countries is relatively high, many improvements are possible and necessary. Santeon was founded in 2010 and originated from the Association of Cooperating Hospitals, to promote open collaboration between the seven Santeon hospitals, with the aim of improving medical care through continuous renewal.
For our patients
To get to this innovation, the Santeon hospitals work together. The medical professionals get behind-the-scenes of each other’s hospital to learn from each other. Treatments and results are systematically compared, reducing mutual variation and improving the quality of all Santeon hospitals. The interest of the patient is key. This way he will get ‘well-better’; Not only medical quality but also the patients’ experience. Mainly because the patients become informed ‘directors’ of their own treatment.
