Vision and Ambition


The HMH Foundation wants to provide good care to patients in the region and therefore facilitates GPs in such a way that high-quality, efficient and safe emergency general care is provided by the General Practitioner Emergency Post. Good administration and supervision are important prerequisites for good care. That is why the Supervisory Board and the Board of Directors work in accordance with the principles of the nationally established Healthcare Governance Code. The SHMH implements its policy based on the professional’s intrinsic motivation. Together with chain partners, she ensures that patient care takes place in the right place, at the right time and by the right healthcare provider in a safe manner



Healthcare is struggling on various fronts, and that is worrying. In acute care, alarm bells have been ringing and bottlenecks are becoming visible for some time. Society is increasingly taking advantage of (acute) care and stakeholders, both inside and outside the organization, each move in their own way. This leads to the vulnerability of the healthcare organization with all the consequences that entail. It is quite a challenge to respond adequately to this.

Working together in networks in acute care is necessary to permanently achieve and maintain good, efficient and effective care in the region. Taking care together is necessary to cope with the hustle and bustle of everyday life. This includes a high workload, an increase in complex problems among vulnerable people, changed regulations and the limitation of resources and manpower. Recruiting and retaining motivated healthcare staff in the region, in particular, requires teamwork; competition is detrimental.

Our ambition is to continue to provide good care and to respond adequately to developments that affect acute general care.

Our ambition is to maintain and strengthen the trust of users, patients, in the Maastricht and Heuvelland General Practitioners Emergency Post.

Our ambition is to maintain and strengthen the enthusiasm and passion of the (healthcare) professionals involved.

Our ambition is to make the GP emergency post a recognisable part of regional general care and the regional network of healthcare providers.

We use the slogan “Taking care together is our DNA” to indicate our direction. The question “Why?” will have to be asked more and more often. Why do we do it like this, why not differently, why not together? Also the question “What do we believe – together – in?” we need to ask more often. Only then can we work together to ensure that the most optimal care is provided to the patients in our region in the right place, at the right time and by the right healthcare provider.
