International Reference Hospital

As an important part of efforts to propose operational content for the NKS, the project has studied and gathered information from several international role models. As a first step, 50 hospitals were identified and evaluated on a global level. Of these, the 18 top hospitals have been examined further, and eight have been visited and studied in detail. These eight hospitals are:

• Mayo Clinic, Rochester
• Johns Hopkins, Baltimore
• Bringham & Women, Boston
• Ronald Reagan, Los Angeles
• Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland

The Netherlands
• Erasmus MC, Rotterdam
• LUMC, Leiden

• Imperial College London, London
• University College London, London
