A master plan, compiled by C.F. Møller Architects, outlines how Dronning Ingrids Hospital, built in 1980, can future-proof its buildings through a combination of new buildings and renovations.
This involves, amongst other things, a new way ofadmitting emergency patients via an emergencydepartment with a surgical wing, recovery unit, and intensive and diagnostic wards to secure rapid diagnosisand treatment plans. Other initiatives include a new psychiatric department, a new national pharmacy, and a new clinic for GPs. Extra space will be created in the existing wards by building a new patient hotel, which will have a distinctive rounded form, providing patients and staff with views of the natural surroundings, including Sana Bay and the fjord.
The first of the master plan’s nine stages has now been carried out.
