Facilities Maasstad Hospital
The new hospital building has a nice and spacious central hall. Here you can find the reception desk, which is staffed by a number of receptionists. In front of this desk you can also find several hostesses, who are glad to help patients and visitors find their way to the right department and/or building unit. Feel free to approach the hostesses for directions or any other questions you may have.
In the wards you can meet our helpful and friendly volunteers, who will try to make your stay in our hospital as pleasant as possible. They can provide a range of non-medically related care, such as peeling your fruit, putting flowers in a vase, or buying a magazine for you. The volunteers will introduce themselves to you when you arrive on the ward. They also wear a different uniform than the nursing staff, making them easy to recognise.
Spiritual caregivers from different denominations and life philosophies are available. They are there to listen and provide support for you, as well as your family and close friends. If you would like to use this service, feel free to ask a member of the nursing staff to contact a spiritual caregiver. Additionally, the hospital also has a Meditation Centre which can be visited.
