Health care is rapidly changing in The Netherlands. There is growing demand for healthcare hotels combined with living units. Moreover, clients are increasingly discerning and there is a need for innovation in the healthcare sector. Healthcare providers are currently assessed for their quality, efficiency and pricing. If they do not innovate, they will lose market share and become threatened in their (independent) existence. Healthcare providers need to make a shift towards social entrepreneurship. Guidelines for this development are demand-orientation, quality and employee satisfaction. Seventh provides an attractive alternative in this scenario, as it offers additional services for healthcare providers. In many ways the healthcare industry is now approaching people and their needs more directly. Consumers meanwhile prefer their healthcare services closer to home or in several cases at a second home or a place where they can comfortably stay for a longer period of time (as in former days one would go on a health retreat).
Seventh goes beyond the Dutch concept of a ‘HOED’ (healthcare providers that jointly offer their services). It offers adequate knowledge and professionalism and even researches unexplained physical complaints. Moreover it is opened 24 hours a day. Due to the horizontal cooperation with various hospitals and health centers, Seventh is bound to become an important referrer to appropriate healthcare providers in the near future.
In theory, ‘HOEDs’ would refer to Seventh, where people are informed, checked and guided. In turn Seventh refers to other healthcare centres such as hospitals, in line with its horizontal cooperations.
At Seventh a private clinic for curative and elective health care is being developed. This clinic will offer treatments for anti-aging, diabetes and general well-being. There are also plans to integrate research for cardiac disease in the service offer. Quality is key at Seventh, so you will find an area to experience ultimate relaxation. This place is located in the central hall of the Earth Lobby at the level of preventative treatments, close to the entrance of the Crystal Room or Heart Room.
The upper levels are treatment-oriented and offer recuperation spaces for short-term guests (total of 12.500 m2 brutto). A special highlight on this floor is the amount of daylight since pleasant surroundings are an important factor in healing (high-quality healing environment). One can also receive health checks, skin treatments and desired corrections here.
Clients learn to take responsibility for their own health during these treatments. People are guided here in traditional as well as alternative ways, in order to gain further insights into their health. Seventh is the place to be for 15 years of extra health.
