RKZ is a general hospital with an internationally renowned burn and wound care center. As a result of the transaction knowledge and expertise can be exchanged between a provider of medical services and a provider of general healthcare services to businesses. The cooperation further strengthens the financial situation of RKZ. RKZ will be one of the few hospitals in the Netherlands that will be privately held.
