Eahm2019 | UZA

28th Congress of the European Association for hospital managers


Antwerp University Hospital (UZA), with its 573 authorised beds, is situated in the south west of the province of Antwerp.

It is an academic centre for leading clinical and customer friendly patient care, high quality academic education and groundbreaking scientific research with a major international dimension. It is one of Belgium’s seven university hospitals.

UZA focuses on clinical scientific research, based on a large biobank. In clinical terms, the hospital is famous for its oncological and haematological treatments and cardiovascular diseases, and for its mother and baby unit. The hospital is supported by a broad medical genetics platform, clinically and scientifically.

The particular values of UZA are a focus on results and cooperation, loyalty and integration, and a sense of responsibilities and reality with a constant striving for quality, as a result of which the hospital obtained the American JCI (Joint Commission International) accreditation for the first time in 2015 and then again in July 2018. It is the first European hospital recognized as a Magnet Hospital, the highest standard in nursing care.
