World-class university hospital

The first patients arrived at New Karolinska Solna (NKS) at the end of November 2016 and are offered customized care in one of the world's most sustainable university hospitals. New Karolinska Solna is Skanska's largest project ever and is being operated and financed under a public-private-partnership.
New Karolinska Solna is being developed with a focus on patients. This means that everything from architectural plans to the operation of the completed hospital are based on patients' privacy, safety and comfort. All patients receives a single room and are offered what is known as thematic care, meaning that a team of medical experts and specialists will work together to treat them in their rooms, rather than requiring them to be transferred between hospital departments for different therapies.

 

Increased proximity between research and care

The association with Karolinska Institute, one of the world's leading medical universities, is given high priority, bringing the two institutions even closer to one another, on either side of Solnavägen. Through increased proximity, new research from the university will be incorporated into daily work at the hospital faster, in the form of clinical trials, enhanced working methods or new medication.

Green throughout

The entire construction production have been a green workplace, featuring environmentally compatible solutions for amenities such as transportation and waste management. The completed hospital are one of the world’s first university hospitals to be environmentally certified within two different certifications.  Both gold level in Environmentally Classified Building standard and gold level in the LEED international certification system. Energy supplies will also be environmentally compatible, in the form of onsite production of geothermal heating and other renewable energy.

Long-term approach through public-private-partnership

With a contract value of SEK 14.5 billion, New Karolinska Solna is one of Skanska’s largest project ever and is being conducted in partnership with the British investment fund Innisfree. The project is an example of a public-private-partnership (PPP), which aims to create added-value to projects compared with traditional procurement processes. The basis is a long-term agreement between the public sector as the customer and a private party as the contractor. For New Karolinska Solna, Skanska and Innisfree will be in charge of financing, construction, building, and the operation and maintenance of the new hospital until 2040.
