Bronovo - Nebo Foundation
Sara Katharina de Bronovo
Bronovo Hospital was founded in 1865 as “The Hague Deaconesses’ Institute” and was later named after the first matron, Sara Katherina de Bronovo.
In 1866, Elisabeth van Hoek was the first deaconess to be appointed.
Bronovo Hospital is a medium-sized hospital that has, generally speaking, a Christian identity for the inhabitants of The Hague, Scheveningen, Voorburg, Wassenaar and the surrounding area. However, many patients outside this area find their way to the Bronovolaan in The Hague.
In 1972, the “Bronovo Deaconesses’ Institute” and the Nebo hospital were merged into the Bronovo-Nebo Foundation. This Foundation now administers Bronovo Hospital and the Nebo Nursing Home.
Inside De Orangerie you will find a tribute to Bronovo Hospital’s early years as a deaconesses’ institution. Three display cases contain various authentic objects, such as a Bible, brooches, cutlery and crockery. And a photo collage on one of the walls recreates the atmosphere of days gone by.
