Always make an appointment with your General Practitioner before visiting the hospital

The Dutch medical system requires you to first make an appointment with your General Practitioner (huisarts) who will refer you to a medical specialist at the hospital if necessary.  
Hospitals in the Netherlands are either regional servicing hospitals or university hospitals, which have an additional education and research function.
