Karolinska University Hospital

Karolinska University Hospital is much more than an acute care hospital – we are one of Scandinavia’s premier medical centers. Together with Karolinska Institutet we represent the leading edge of medical science and patient care in Sweden. We believe that patient care, research, and education must play equally strong roles in our mission to extend and enhance people’s lives. As a major teaching hospital we educate the medical specialists and healthcare professionals of the future. Our hospital is not only one of the largest in Scandinavia – we also represent the pinnacle of professional performance. By merging the Huddinge University Hospital, Inc. and Karolinska Hospital, we have forged an integrated organization that drives innovation and preserves our solid academic tradition. Karolinska University Hospital is recognized for excellence – in Sweden as a teaching hospital and internationally as a center for clinical research – a reputation earned by setting the benchmark high. We are proud of our vision – future health care based on science and development. A goal in achieving our vision is to be recognized as one of Europe’s top five teaching hospitals by 2011.

Sweden’s Leading Medical Science Center

Karolinska Institutet and Karolinska University Hospital share a long history of close collaboration. Karolinska Institutet is Sweden’s only university dedicated exclusively to medical science. Most of the clinical research at Karolinska Institutet is carried out at, and in direct collaboration with, the Karolinska University Hospital. Together, our two organizations form the foundation for a rapidly expanding center for medical science. By joining forces in extensive regional collaboration – for example, through shared investments in Stockholm BioRegion, Science City, and research foundations at Novum – area organizations are becoming more united. The medical research carried out at Karolinska University Hospital and affi liated teaching sites in the Stock holm region led to the publication of more than 15,000 scientifi c articles between 2001 and 2004.

Department of Neurology

The department offers specialized neurological care, research, and education in cooperation with Karolinska Institutet. The centers are located in Huddinge and Solna. Our services include diagnostics and treatment of diseases or injuries of the central and peripheral nervous systems and the muscles, as well as research and teaching in the same field. The department was founded on September 1, 2004, through the merger of the departments of neurology at Karolinska Hospital and Huddinge University Hospital. The department is responsible for neurological care in Stockholm County and also provides extensive regional, national, and international care.
