Visiting times

As of Monday 5 July visiting restrictions are being relaxed further. We want to explicitly ask to strictly follow the guidelines and to sign a declaration of honour before coming to the hospital.

Modified visiting arrangements

Specific visiting arrangements apply for the Gasthuisberg and Pellenberg campus. View the guidelines for each campus.

For everyone's safety

The measures taken concerning visiting are necessary to guarantee the safety and health of vulnerable patients and our employees as much as possible.

Digital alternatives

Videochat via interactive screen and Jitsi

Patients who do not have a smartphone or tablet, can videochat with their familiy via Jitsi and the bedside octopuz screens.

Family members can download the app for iOS or Android. Patients and their family need to agree on a unique name for the 'meeting room' they're going to use to do a video call. This name needs to be entered in the Jitsi-app so that they can get in touch with one another.


  • On the octopuz screen, under the header 'Ontspanning en communication' (entertainment and communicationt), click on 'Apps'.
  • Click on the Jitsi Meet tile.
  • Enter the name of the 'meeting room' you agreed on.

Family and friends

  • Download the Jitsi-app in the Google Play Store (Android) or the App Store (iOS).
  • You don't need to make an account.
  • Enter the name of the 'meeting room' you agreed on.

Greeting card

Send a patient a get well soon card or a card to congratulate? Choose and personalise your greeting card. We'll get it to the patient's room for free. .
