Health and well-being come first

Fredo Kranen, NHN Gezond, Director Omring: ‘NHN Gezond is committed to providing quality care in the region, even though we know demand is increasing. But health is more than just care. This is why we choose a broad approach. So in addition to care, it is also about well-being, housing and other matters that determine health. Together we look: what does the population of our region need to be healthy? We collect the resources available for this and use them as effectively as possible. The health of the people of North-Nord Holland is our top priority! “

Human health is determined by many different factors, including a healthy community. Just like in the whole of the Netherlands, we also face different challenges in the three regions of Noord-Holland-Noord, namely Koop van Noord Holland, West-Friesland and Noord-Kenemerland. The aging population is growing, there are long waiting lists, fewer healthcare workers are available, and the mental health of the population deserves attention.

As an older person in this region, I also want to be well-off. And I can be I worry and complain about it, but I want to see if I can contribute something and if I can help change something. To promote health, collaboration is inevitable. As an organization, don’t go for yourself, but go for the health of the community. Dismantle and exchange strength with each other.I hope that from NHN Gezond I can mean something on this.
