Introduction to Maastricht UMC+

Maastricht University Medical Centre+ is a partnership between Maastricht University Hospital and Maastricht University's Faculty of Health, Medicine & Life Sciences.

We distinguish ourselves nationally and internationally by focusing not only on restoring people to good health but also on helping them stay healthy and improve their health. In addition to tertiary referral care and top clinical patient care, our core tasks are research, education and training, and valorisation. Maastricht UMC+ also provides basic healthcare services for the city of Maastricht and environs. This means that, in cooperation with our network partners, we are uniquely equipped to deliver healthcare services from baseline to tertiary level and thus offer precisely the right care where it is needed, but also to investigate the effects of new healthcare models. In our teaching, we take a multidisciplinary and problem-based approach that uses case histories to impart knowledge.

Healthy Living 2025

We have refined the course followed by Maastricht UMC+ and describe it in this document, Healthy Living 2025. In this way, we are building on our Healthy Living 2020 strategy of 2015. This does not represent a major change of course; instead we are deepening and further developing our existing strategy. In Maastricht, we have been working for more than a decade on health in the broader sense. For example, in our vision document 'Care, Cure, Well-being & Health' [Heel de Mens] (2010), we explained that we were not focusing solely on curing people when they are sick, but also on developing knowledge and skills relating to factors that influence health. With great conviction, we are further consolidating our strong position in restoring people to health as well as maintaining and promoting people's health.
