AZ Maria Middelares, located to the south of Ghent, in East Flanders, is easily accessible by both car and public transport. It is a medium-sized institution with 542 authorised beds and 99 beds for day patients.
AZ Maria Middelares is a very efficient hospital, innovative yet proud of its warm human face. Constantly monitoring advances in science, it offers high-tech healthcare alongside basic care.
The hospital’s high-quality care is safeguarded by its profound appreciation of the personal investment of all its doctors and staff. Additionally, AZ Maria Middelares aims to broaden its horizon, breaking through the walls of its immediate environment. This is reflected not only in the constructive dialogue pursued with general practitioners, but also in the great value the hospital attaches to its collaboration agreements with its (international) partners.
The services and disciplines, which have forged the reputation of AZ Maria Middelares and continue to do so today, include cardiology and heart surgery, its Ophthalmology Centre, its integrated Cancer Centre, physiotherapy (with interactive programmes and a spinal unit) and its Foot Centre, which is the biggest in Flanders.
Its constant striving for quality was rewarded in 2016 when it was accredited by the American JCI (Joint Commission International).
