The smartest hospital in the world
Oulu university hospital will be rebuilt by 2030. With a long-term development programme we are building new facilities and renewing our functions to meet the future challenges of specialized medical care.
The project’s vision for change is that, by the year 2030, OYS will be the world’s smartest hospital, in which the newest technologies, modern facilities and up-to-date expertise will combine to ensure effective and influential care that is the best in the world.
Programme in numbers
The total cost of the programme is around € 1.6 billion. New construction accounts for about 900 million of this.
The new hospital complex will be about 10% smaller than the current one.
The new hospital will be built in stages. In addition to the new main building we build facilities for radiotherapy and support services.
With the renewal of operations and new facilities, the aim is to improve the productivity of the hospital by 10–15%.
The Oulu University hospital employs about 6,900 people.
The new hospital has about 600 patient rooms, mainly single rooms.
