Kentalis International Foundation is an independent legal entity, registered as a foundation in the Dutch Chamber of Commerce. However, it is integrated into the governing structure of the mother organization Royal Kentalis. 

The Royal Kentalis organization is based on a two-tier governance structure: a Board of Directors and a Supervisory Board.

Board of Directors

The Board of Directors is responsible for the day-to-day governance of the Kentalis organization. The Board guards the course, mission, and ambition of Kentalis concerning changes in society as well as political and financial developments. The Board has the ultimate responsibility for the quality and safety of care and education provided by Kentalis. The Kentalis Board of Directors consists of two members: Oscar Dekker (chairman, CEO) and Sandra Beuving.

Supervisory Board

The Supervisory Board monitors the functioning of the Board of Directors, the policies pursued, and the general state of affairs at Kentalis. Additionally, the Supervisory Board functions as a sounding board for the Board of Directors. The functioning of the Supervisory Board is in accordance with the Dutch Zorgbrede Governance code (Care Governance Code). The Kentalis Supervisory Board consists of five members:

  • Jos Aartsen (chairman)
  • Marc van den Berg (chair audit committee)
  • Anita Wydoodt (chair committee quality and safety)
  • Tamara Kroll (member audit committee)
  • Kitty Oirbons (member committee quality and safety)
