Reception 1 (level 0), UMC Utrecht site
There is no Emergency Department (ED) within WKZ. Both children and adults are welcome at the ED on the UMC Utrecht site.
When should I come to the ED?
Sometimes your physician will be of the opinion that you need to be referred to the ED to consult a specialist. You could also decide to come to the ED in an emergency.*
The Emergency Department (ED) is open 24 hours a day to all patients (both adults and children) requiring some form of emergency care/treatment. We operate a fundamental principle whereby all patients are seen and treated.
*Straight to ED
It may well be abundantly clear that you require urgent help. In such cases, you are entitled to come straight to ED without a referral from your physician. Examples include being injured in an accident or being too ill to wait for your family doctor to see you.
With regard to costs, your deductible does apply. If the bill exceeds your deductible, then these extra expenses will be reimbursed. Even if your health insurance company does not have a contract with the hospital.
