The Sanctuary is situated on the ground floor. It is a place for peace, quietness, prayer, meditation. Everybody is most welcome there, at any time of the day. Further information about the sanctuary can be found under Stiltecentrum (in Dutch).


Smoking is anything but healthy. This not only applies to smokers, but also to non-smokers sharing a room with a smoker. For this reason the BovenIJ hospital is a non-smoking hospital. The use of tobacco products (including cigarettes, cigars, tobacco, etc.) and electronic cigarettes (e-cigar, e-pipe, Shisha-pen, etc.) is not allowed. Smoking is only allowed in  the smoking areas outside the hospital which are clearly marked by signs and pavement markings. In that area you can also find special smoking cabins.


There are no landline telephones near the hospital beds. Patients can use their own mobile phone inside the hospital. But there are some restrictions to the use of a mobile phone:

  • You can only call outside a 1.5 meter (5 feet) radius of medical equipment
  • Do not disturb other (sleeping) patients
  • Do not use your phone after 10 PM and turn of the sound after that time
  • Do not call during the examination or contact with a caregiver/doctor
  • Please ask visitors to only call in public places in the hospital so they don’t disturb other patients.

Television and radio

There is a bed terminal above each bed allowing patients easy access to television and radio. Patients have free access to more than 50 TV channels and over 15 radio channels. To listen to the radio or the sound of the TV, you’ll need a set of earphones. If there are no earphones next to the bed, you can obtain some at the reception desk. You can also bring your own headphones or headset.


Wheelchairs for moving around inside the hospital are available on the hospital concourse. You will need a € 2,- coin to use one. The coin is returned to you when the wheelchair is returned to the concourse.
