Maastricht UMC + is a university medical center and therefore it has three key functions:
- patient care
- education and training
- scientific research
In addition to standard patient care, top clinical care and tertiary referral care are an important task of a university medical center,.
In addition to the standard patient care we provide highly specialized care for patients with disseases that are rare and/or difficult to treat and/or difficult to diagnose. Specialized care is expensive. Therefore, the government has alloted special budgets to the eight Dutch university medical centers (UMCs) of which Maastricht UMC+ is one. This way, the UMCs can ensure that patients with complicated disseases always receive the right care they need. Now, but also in the future. Please check the website of the Dutch Federation of University Medical Centres [Nederlandse Federatie van Universitair Medische Centra - NFU] for more information about the specialized care offered by our hospital.
Maastricht UMC + provides top clinical care. Therefore we have special services that are only available in a hospital that has acquired permission of the Minister of Public Health, through the Special Medical Procedures Act.
