New Karolinska Hospital is complete

Karolinska University Hospital in Stockholm completed the last major patient move into the new hospital building as of 28 October.

The hospital began commissioning the new building in November 2016. The final move represents the last step in its plan for 2018 and marks the full commissioning of the new hospital building. Cooperation between the hospitals in Stockholm has been a key factor in successfully completing the entire move project -- one of the largest in the history of Stockholm's county council, Karolinska said.

About 70 patients have been moved to their new rooms. The move signifies the new hospital building is now fully in use. Some units, however, will remain located in the old hospital building for a period of time. In addition, several of Karolinska's day and outpatient units for adults and children are located at another building in the hospital area.

Single-patient rooms, an increased number of operating rooms, and space for two helicopters are examples of improvements that will fulfill future needs for advanced healthcare, the hospital said.
