In the UMC Utrecht every year we receive thousands of patients suffering from cardiovascular disease, for which we provide the best care possible. The UMC Utrecht is thé Center for Circulatory Health for central-Netherlands. We treat patients with cardiovascular disease from the Utrecht area who have been referred to us by their general practitioner, but also patients from the rest of the Netherlands with more complex disease. In addition, for a number of treatments we are an international reference center. Besides the treatment of patients with cardiovascular disease, the UMC Utrecht carries the ambition to improve cardiovascular health care in the Netherlands with both medical and organisational innovations.
