Zuyderland finds knowledge transfer, investment in further expertise development and hypermodern medical equipment very important and likes to be a precursor of innovations in cure and care.
Due to this merger Zuyderland can reach a bigger patient/client population for our project and have a bigger catchment area to implement the solutions from this project within our own organization.
