by Dr. Simon Everarts

The municipal council of Noordgouwe have decided to honour no longer Doctor J.L.C. Wortman. He was the family doctor of the village of Noordgouwe in the last half of this century. Thanks to him the little village had a hospital for more than fifty years. A lot of people still living in the island of Schouwen-Duiveland were born in the former hospital and the older people still speak with respect about the doctor. Only a few inhabitants disagreed with the change of the streetname. Starting 1.1.1999 Dr. Wortmanstraat 28 will be Ring 28.
