About Bronovo

The Bronovo Hospital is a general hospital for the residents of The Hague and surrounding areas. The hospital was founded in 1865 as The Hague Deaconesses’ Institute (´s Gravenhaagsche Diaconessen-Inrichting). The name was later changed to Bronovo hospital, after the first “managing sister” Sara Katharina de Bronovo.


Bronovo is a general hospital with 415 beds where the patients and employees are centrally important. We are a quality hospital, both objectively and in the patient’s experience, providing personal care to all our patients. Employees know each other and the patient. Situated in a modern building, on the northern outskirts of The Hague, over 1.500 employees and 120 specialists work together in a multidisciplinary team to offer health care with the motto “Together we care”.

The Bronovo Hospital offers specialised medical care provided by a broad team of medical specialists. Virtually all specialisations are practised. The hospital has an alliance with the Leiden University Medical Centre (Leids Universitair Medisch Centrum) and functions as a Teaching Hospital for medical students and interns. We also offer training for four specialisations: Surgery, Gynaecology and Obstetrics, Internal Medicine and Clinical Chemistry, as well as training for general practice, tropical diseases, nursing and training for paramedical personnel. We aim to offer personalised care and care tailored to match care from other providers, such as home nursing, general practitioners and nursing and care homes.

The Bronovo Hospital, together with the Nebo Nursing Home (Verpleeghuis Nebo) and The Wassenaar Health Centre  (Gezondheidscentrum Wassenaar), forms the Bronovo-Nebo Foundation (Stichting Bronovo-Nebo).
