Within the Healthcare sector, Boer & Croon focuses on both hospital care and other forms of healthcare, including institutions for mental health care, care for the elderly, health services for people with disabilities, and youth health services.
The Dutch healthcare system has been in constant flux in recent years, and this situation is not likely to change over the next few years. With an increase in both healthcare demand and financial pressure, many institutions are compelled to reassess their organisation and change their strategy and focus. This has an impact on strategy, external partnerships, leadership and the role of support services. These latter services support line management as business partners, making it easier for the primary processes to define their self-organising role. All these issues present substantial challenges to supervisory boards, directors, officers and upper management, both in terms of structure and in terms of organisational culture.

“I am personally committed to creating a connection between all parties operating in the healthcare sector, both directly and tangentially, who need each other but who appear to have conflicting interests.”
