Welcome to the amazing world of Joep at Erasmus MC Sophia Children’s Hospital!
Joep is ill and the doctors are going to find out what is wrong with him. Joep is visiting Erasmus MC Sophia Children’s Hospital to have a look around in all sorts of special rooms before he needs to go to see the doctor.
Why don’t you join Joep, Bear, and Olli?
Come and discover our remarkable children’s hospital together with Joep so that you know the ins and outs before you have your appointment.
Joep has a very sweet bear who knows all sorts of fun facts about the rooms. Olli too can’t wait to show you all around the rooms with the 360-degree views from floor to ceiling.

The Vrienden van het Sophia Foundation
With the financial help of the Vrienden van het Sophia Foundation, this virtual tour has been realized. The foundation does everything to make the stay of patients and their families in the hospital as pleasant as possible. In this way, they ensure attractive decoration of the hospital, toys and relaxation options.
Now it is possible for you and your family to see what the hospital looks like at home. We hope to make you a little more comfortable when you go to the hospital.
Are you curious about what the foundation does or how you can contribute? Then take a look at the foundation's website (Dutch only).
Who is Olli?
‘Hello, I’m Olli, the biggest and chubbiest fan of all the small and big heroes at Sophia Children’s Hospital. There is a large statue of Olli in the arrivals hall of the hospital. Next to it is the elephant poop letterbox so that you can send Olli your wish.
If you want to know more about Olli, check the Ollimania website.
