Expert expat hospital care in South Holland15 May 2014, by IamExpat Spotter
There are times as an expat when living far away from family and familiar things can be unusually stressful, and one of those times is when you need serious medical attention.
Simply needing to go to hospital is a difficult enough prospect without also having to negotiate an unfamiliar health system. This is one of the reasons that Bronovo Hospital in The Hague has special services available for expats.
