The upgrading of healthcare facilities in Sörmland, Sweden includes the refurbishment and extensions of hospitals in three cities.
Requirements for healthcare facilities are evolving quickly, driven by the development of new medical equipment, changing healthcare patterns and medical breakthroughs.
In the region of Sörmland, southwest of Stockholm, Ramboll is modernising three local hospitals in the cities of Eskilstuna, Nyköping and Katrineholm.
The existing buildings were originally constructed between the 1920’s and 1970’s and cannot cater for the delivery of modern healthcare services. The new facilities will provide many benefits and make it possible to introduce state-of-the-art medical equipment and minimise contamination risks.
In total, the project (across the three hospitals) consists of four new buildings of approximately 70,000 m2 and involves approximately 30,000 m2 of refurbishments. In addition, around 25,000 m2 of the existing buildings will be demolished - without disturbing the daily routine of the hospital.
The new facilities include 22 operating theatres, 3 MRIs, 2 sterilization departments, 2 emergency care units, 2 intensive care units and 2 delivery departments as well as many other specialist departments. There will also will be 280 examination and ward rooms, most of them with single bed capacity.
Our reputation as a well-respected hospital design and engineering company in Sweden, as well as our local knowledge of the three existing hospitals, was instrumental in Ramboll being chosen for the project.
