On 27 September 2020, St. Erik Eye Hospital relocated to Hagastaden, Solna, a rapidly growing life science area near Karolinska University Hospital and Karolinska Institutet.
Our vision is to create an Eye Centre of Excellence in order to stimulate care, research and development within the field of ophthalmology.
In September 2020, St. Erik relocated to new premises. CEO Anders Boman has a vision for a new eye specialist centre.
With the move to new premises, St. Erik Eye Hospital has invested in new medical technology. This is evident, not least in the operating theatres, where old equipment has given way to the new.
With new waiting rooms and smart planning, St. Erik Eye Hospital will face the growing demand for eye injections. Around 100 patients are injected each day.
No more cramped, outdated dorm rooms. In St. Erik Eye Hospital’s clean, newly constructed premises, all hospitalised patients get their own room.
New, specially adapted premises for paediatric ophthalmology, along with proximity to Karolinska University Hospital will be advantageous for both patients and staff.
The eye emergency service have new premises that provide better conditions for supervision and training. A rear corridor facilitates consultations between ophthalmologists, in severe patient cases.
New, cutting-edge washer disinfectors and specially designed lifts. St. Erik Eye Hospital’s new premises guarantee a higher level of sterilisation and improved patient safety.
Donated tissue from eyes and placentas can prove life-changing for someone with impaired vision. At the new tissue lab, donated tissue is processed for use in surgery and transplantations.
The histopathological lab at new St. Erik Eye Hospital is one of the smallest in the country, but it is also the only one specialising exclusively in eyes. Here eye tumors are examined.
Moving into the rapidly growing life science cluster in Hagastaden will offer greater opportunities for providing eye patients with the best eye care in Sweden.
When planning the new premises for St. Erik Eye Hospital, accessibility, especially for visitors with impaired sight, has been a focal point.
In September St. Erik Eye Hospital relocates to new premises in Solna. Planning the relocation, which is set to take nine days, has been under way for two years.
