Healthcare and poetry? Poems in a hospital? Yes, of course! UZ Brussel is the only Dutch-language hospital in Brussels, but as part of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) we take pride in our openness to all, regardless of language, nationality or religion. Each day, over 3500 dedicated colleagues give their very best for our patients. Our hospital stands for advanced medical care, research and education. But above all, what we do is all about people. Poetry is a way to put the human aspect central, together with all emotions involved.
