Investing in people

At UZ Leuven the patient always takes centre stage. Our assignment is to provide every patient with the best care. A humane and personal approach is key. Respect for one another is essential which is why UZ Leuven also invests in its employees, so that they can give the best of themselves every day.

Investing in research

In addition to patient care and training, academic research is a key assignment for UZ Leuven. The close bond with the KU Leuven and the hospital's location on the Health Sciences Gasthuisberg campus ensure that UZ Leuven can be counted as world class for a lot of medical and biomedical research disciplines.

Investing in networks

UZ Leuven does not stay on the sidelines. Networking and community building with other healthcare players is an important mission. The expertise the hospital has at its disposal, is being shared and exchanged with other hospitals, referrers, care homes, GPs and other healthcare providers.

Investing in the future

Training tomorrow's doctors and care providers is one of the core assignments of a university hospital. The link and the exchange with the KU Leuven make UZ Leuven one of the largest medical training institutes of Flanders. With a clear vision UZ Leuven wants to remain a healthcare pioneer.
