The works council of the Reinier Haga Orthopedic Center and the hospitals LangeLand and Haga have reached agreement on a merger. This is reported by Omroep West.
The Enterprise Chamber of the Courthouse in Amsterdam had asked the works council (or) of the Reinier Haga Orthopedic Center (RHOC) and both hospitals to sit around the table in a last attempt to settle the dispute. We succeeded. The works council and the hospitals have concluded a covenant. In this agreement, the parties agreed, among other things, that works council members would sit on the committee that will investigate the functioning of the RHOC. This means that a ruling by the Enterprise Chamber has been ruled out.
The merger of the hospitals required a financial injection for the LangeLand Hospital. Some health insurers also contributed to this. They set conditions for this, as a result of which the Works Council feared for the continued existence of the RHOC and approached the Enterprise Chamber of the Amsterdam Court of Justice.
