After the merger of the Elisabeth and TweeSteden Hospitals, Elisabeth-TweeSteden Hospital (ETZ) became one of the largest in the Netherlands. The ETZ houses a top clinical training facility and trauma center, and has three locations that serve all residents of the North Brabant region and beyond.



  • Consolidated network for all hospital locations
  • Single, simplified management interface
  • Secure, flexible user and medical device connectivity
  • Scalable connectivity and deployment for future expansion projects
"Using Fabric, migrations are now much easier and cause little to no downtime. Moving core switches can be done without downtime. Expanding new ports and switches is much easier and doesn’t require configuration. The network does that all by itself, is much faster, and more reliable with these tasks."
Dennis Groen
Senior Project Manager, Elisabeth-TweeSteden Hospital
