Liesbeth van Heel

Trained in Facility Management and Business Economics Liesbeth van Heel (1964) joined Erasmus MC in 1992 as a management trainee. She worked in the FM-department, was an administrator for paediatric surgery for 2 years and supported the Executive Board of Erasmus MC, before joining the hospital’s redevelopment project. After years of working as an university hospital real estate professional, leading a small expert team, her focus shifted to the coordinating effort to align the various strategic programs within Erasmus MC toward a safe relocation to the new hospital building, with fitting work processes, logistics and IT-support. This transition took place in May 2018. Liesbeth’s special attention has been patient's needs and creating a "healing environment", using (inter)nationally acquired evidence and experience based design knowledge. As a senior policy advisor she propagate knowledge sharing and network building for 'informed clients' in the Netherlands. She also co-coordinates the scientific Program Evaluation of our New Erasmus MC, which focusses on infection prevention, experience with wards with 100% single rooms and balance between bricks, bytes and behaviour in integrated health infrastructure project delivery. On this last subject she started her PhD research.
