The University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG) was established in 2005 as a joint activity of the University of Groningen and the Academic Hospital Groningen (AZG). At present, the UMCG is one of the largest hospitals in the Netherlands and the largest employer in the Northern Netherlands. More than 10,000 employees provide patient care, are involved in medical education, and perform cutting-edge scientific research focused on ‘healthy and active ageing.’ Patients attend the UMCG for basic care but also for very specialized diagnoses, examination or treatment, such as for primary aldosteronism. All patients from the Northern Netherlands with complicated or unusual disorders are eventually referred to the UMCG. Expertise reference networks within the department of Endocrinology at the UMCG are focused on thyroid cancer, genetic endocrine tumour syndromes, pituitary diseases and adrenal tumours.
