our history

A Legacy of Medical Excellence

In 1997, Dr. Reginald Kort founded Health Control Services (HCS) as the Mozes Foundation for Curative and Preventive Care. With extensive experience as the head physician at Billiton Maatschappij Suriname, an affiliate of the renowned BHP Group, Dr. Kort recognized the diverse medical needs within companies and the importance of establishing clinics, particularly in remote areas. Under his guidance, the general practice provided preventive and curative care through a team of dedicated medical professionals, including general practitioners, company doctors, and diabetes nurses.

Evolving with the Changing Healthcare Landscape

Over time, as Surinamese society progressed, the healthcare landscape transformed, necessitating specialized medical services. The growing emphasis on employee health and safety within companies led to an increased demand for pre-employment and ongoing medical examinations. Technological advancements fueled the need for specialized screenings, while the expansion of the gold mine sector required on-site medical services in remote areas. Concurrently, the demand for clinical laboratory services continued to rise.

Expanding to Meet Suriname's Healthcare Needs

Recognizing the evolving healthcare needs of Suriname, Dr. Sheila Kort and Dr. Anouk Kort, the daughters of Dr. Reginald Kort, took the reins of HCS. Leveraging over 40 years of combined expertise, they led the gradual expansion of the practice’s service portfolio. Today, HCS stands as a leading organization offering a comprehensive array of medical services to the people of Suriname.
