In the early 20th century the city of Eindhoven, located in the Roman Catholic area of the Netherlands, had two mainly Roman Catholic hospitals, the Binnenziekenhuis en the Sint-Josephziekenhuis. During this period, Protestants from the rest of the country, relocated to Eindhoven, to work at Philips, causing a growth of the Protestant population. Since 1929 the "Vereeniging voor Protestantsch-Christelijke Ziekenverpleging" (English: Association for Protestant-Christian Patient Care) had put in effort to get a Protestant hospital. In 1933 an emergency hospital was opened in a villa at the Parklaan in Eindhoven, mainly by the efforts of Phillipes headnurse Johanna Kleinod, and with financial support of dr. Anton Philips, who wanted the best medical care for all his employees, no matter what their religious orientation. With 20 beds it was soon found too small and in 1935 Villa Elsheim was bought with financial support of Philips. The new hospital, with 90 beds and a modern Rontgen department, was opened on 13 January 1940. In the 1950s the hospital was once again too small and in April 1967 it relocated to the Ds. Fliednerlaan in Woensel, Eindhoven.
