Center for radiotherapy and oncology
The center for radiotherapy and oncology was built on behalf of the VU Medical Center and the Westfriesgasthuis. On the first floor, Esperanz, a collaboration between Dijklander Hospital and Zaans Medical Center, has an oncology outpatient clinic. On the ground floor, the radiotherapy center of the VUmc is located, with a central reception, waiting area, and three treatment rooms. More than a thousand people will be treated here annually.
Gortemaker Algra Feenstra is an old acquaintance in Hoorn: “We have been involved with Dijklander Hospital since 1995,” says architect Hans Liscaljet. “Every ten years, Dijklander Hospital assesses the state of healthcare in the Netherlands. We are working on a phased expansion: phase 1 was the merger of the two different locations of Dijklander Hospital, phase 2 will be completed in 2012, and all patient facilities will be included in the new building.”
