Genderhealthcare was founded by Luiza de Oliveira Ferraz and Catharina Anastasia Romanova van Oranje-Nassau. They are the driving force behind Genderhealthcare, and wider behind Genderness. They have gathered around them a team of health professionals, health planners and a quality officer to carry the organisation.

Genderhealthcare has managed to achieve a stable financial and organisational situation – as planned – by the beginning of April 2022. Since then, Genderhealthcare has had a stable financial situation. In addition, the Inspectorate for Health Care and Youth recently issued an inspection report in which it clearly states that it has faith in the directors and the team of professionals that they provide good care with a good organisation, or will improve on the points indicated.

Since 1rst of June 2022 there is a supervisory board consisting of two members: Ron Leenders (chair/ insurance companies/ regulations and rules) and Medi Joon-Teitink (Finance).
