The Hague’s Bronovo hospital, popular with both royals and the international community, will close by 2024 at the latest but will be shut at weekends from mid 2019, management company HMC has confirmed.

‘In 2019, HMC Bronovo will be transformed into a week-day hospital for day treatment and planned care,’ the company said. ‘Between 2022 and 2024, day treatment and planned care will be transfered to the Antoniushove and Westeinde hospitals and the Bronovo, in its present form, will close.’

Earlier this month it emerged that the Bronovo was scheduled for closure to shore up the HMC group’s finances.

All three of king Willem-Alexander’s children were born at the Bronovo, which is walking distance from the royal family’s official residence Paleis ten Bosch.

The hospital has also made a particular point of attracting expat custom, with special clinics and a specialist expat service desk.
