The Karolinska University Hospital (Swedish: Karolinska Universitetssjukhuset) is a university hospital in Stockholm, Sweden, with two major sites in the municipalities of Huddinge and Solna.
The present day Karolinska University Hospital is the result of a 2004 merger between the former Huddinge University Hospital (Huddinge Universitetssjukhus) in Huddinge, south of Stockholm, and the Karolinska Hospital (Karolinska Sjukhuset) in Solna, north of Stockholm. The hospital has about 15,800 employees and 1,600 patient beds. The Karolinska University Hospital is closely affiliated with the Karolinska Institute (Karolinska institutet).
The move to Karolinska University Hospital’s new hospital building in Solna (The New Karolinska Solna University Hospital) is currently underway, the heart, lung and thorax units have already moved in as have some units within Astrid Lindgren Children’s Hospital in Solna, including the pediatric emergency ward. The new University hospital in Solna is expected to be in full operation by 2018.
