H.H. Hospital of Mol Managing Director
Ivo Jacobs is a trained (abdominal) surgeon. After wandering in Congo (Zaire) and the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, he started his clinical practice in the hospital of Mol. In 2002 he combined his clinical practice there with the position of chief physician to become full-time medical director at the hospital in 2015. In 2020, one month after the outbreak of the corona crisis - and one year before the cyber-attack - he became CEO of the hospital. In addition to his current position as managing director, Ivo Jacobs is also active as chairman of the auditor at Qualicor Europe.
