Healthcare

We are all affected by the healthcare sector and it falls heavily under social and political scrutiny. Regulation of competition in the healthcare sector has also made it increasingly dynamic and challenging. As the demand for healthcare services is ever-growing, so too are the strains and scrutiny placed on its decision makers. Also, the mountain of legislation and the interaction of competitive forces has resulted in the reassessment of many existing business models.

Recent changes in the Dutch healthcare system have allowed investors and care providers to operate from the Netherlands when deploying innovative care concepts. E-Health plays an increased role in prevention and screening, and remodelling of the healthcare system has resulted in hospital mergers, partnerships, and reorganisation of healthcare. This growth in innovation is evident across other Loyens & Loeff markets in Belgium, Switzerland and Luxembourg.

Our full-service offer integrates a tax, civil and notarial approach. We will work with you on any of your questions and issues, and provide expert and pragmatic solutions.
