On this basis, the ZVK, in close consultation with the management of Fundashon Mariadal, draw up  a contingency plan, with which the waiting list of patients who have to undergone surgery at the hospital in Aruba, will be minimized within a foreseeable time. Priority will be given to patients who were already on Aruba or about to leave for Aruba for medical care , at the time of the malfunctioning of the HOH.
