The mission statement of the Stedelijk Ziekenhuis Roeselare is PERSONAL | LEADING | TOGETHER. PERSONAL is at the heart of the organisation: we treat our patients in a personal, respectful and open manner. LEADING aims at the fulfilment of care; it alludes to a safe, qualitative and efficient way of nursing. TOGETHER indicates the operational involvement of all of us: doctors, nurses and other hospital staff members on the one hand, and external partners on the other.

The mission of the Stedelijk Ziekenhuis Roeselare with regard to sports medicine is to assist sports professionals in fully benefiting from prevention, treatment and rehabilitation, as well as optimisation of their performances. In this respect, we adopt a PERSONAL | LEADING | MULTIDISCIPLINARY approach with our group of different specialists including sports and rehabilitation physicians (6), sports orthopaedic surgeons (7), physiotherapists (50), psychologists (6), occupational therapists (10) and dieticians (4). As doctors and paramedics from the hospital are involved in assisting the Red Devils, the national football team, and a nearby first-class football team (FC Club Brugge), it is clear that we have a major commitment to football medicine.

We will continue to pursue our research and treatment strategies in order to be a reliable and progressive companion for future FIFA standards in football medicine.
