Zaans Medical Centre paramounts patient care process

01 September 2016 - Good health and well-being (SDG 3)

Zaans Medical Centre's brand-new building was constructed between January 2014 and August 2016. The building has a floor area of approximately 40,000 m2 and was built over the old car park. Once the new building was opened, the old hospital was torn down. The hospital was co-financed by BNG Bank and Rabobank Zaanstreek in equal shares.

The ZMC designed and constructed the new hospital in alliance with Vitaal ZorgVast, a subsidiary of BAM Utiliteitsbouw, and the two organisations will jointly manage and maintain the facility. The guiding principles were sustainability, quality and reliability. Never before has a collaborating party been involved at such an early stage. The knowledge and skills of all parties were applied very early in the process. This resulted in a building in which the patient care process is paramount and affordability is guaranteed.
