The Burn Centre at Maasstad Hospital

The Burn Centre at Maasstad Hospital treats patients with burns and other skin conditions. Maasstad Hospital is home to one of the Netherlands’ three burn centres. The other two burn centres are based in the Rode Kruis Hospital (Beverwijk) and the Martini Hospital (Groningen). Maasstad Hospital’s Burn Centre treats an average of forty percent of the burns patients admitted to centres throughout the Netherlands. We provide high quality burns care 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

The Burn Centre treats patients with serious burns from all over the country, particularly from the southern half of the country and the South East Netherlands.

Maasstad Hospital has specialised in the treatment of burns since the end of the 1960s, when the hospital was known as Zuiderziekenhuis. In 1986 this resulted in the establishment of a new burns centre.

The specialist burns care at Maasstad Hospital is based on three pillars:

  1. Specific knowledge and skills;
  2. Special structural provisions;
  3. Multidisciplinary treatment.
