The Maastricht University Medical Centre + (Maastricht UMC+) is the name under which the academic hospital Maastricht and the Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences of the Maastricht University cooperate. They provide a complete offer of excellent care: a broad offer of basic care, top clinical and advanced specialized care, always with the integration of research and education from the faculty.
Their aim is health recovery, health preservation and health promotion. This means that they do not only want to cure people once they are ill, but rather keep them healthy for as long as possible and prevent they need care. So they mainly focus on prevention (preventing diseases) and by doing so, they distinguish themselves internationally from other university medical centers. This is why they have the “+” in their name and their motto is Healthy living.
