Our organization

Horacio Oduber Hospital (HOH for short) is a medium-sized general hospital in Aruba. September 2014 marked the start of the hospital's expansion and renovation project, one of the largest construction projects in Aruban history. Including a new bed house, a three times larger emergency room, a new outpatient clinic for specialists and the remodeling of the building, this will provide more patient privacy and better service in a modern environment. The final phase of this project will resume at the end of the year 2023 after a dispute by parties caused construction to be halted in 2022.

The hospital has more than 20 different specialties and about 1,300 employees. Specialized physicians are contracted by the HOH or work privately (private and independent). The staff is very diverse, consisting of people from Aruba and the Caribbean region as well as from European and South American countries. Employees at HOH work in a multilingual environment. Next to the main language Dutch, they speak the local language Papiamento and languages such as Spanish and English are also spoken, which is useful for tourism.

The Horacio Oduber Hospital is part of the Dutch Caribbean Hospital Alliance (DCHA) along with other hospitals in the Caribbean that are part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Alliances and collaborations include the laboratory of Curaçao (ADC), regional laboratory Haarlem, the University Medical Center Utrecht (UMCU), Erasmus Medical Center (EMC), Radboud University, the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU), Maastricht University, Xavier University, Thomas Moore in Belgium and partner hospitals in Colombia.
