One of the largest construction projects to be undertaken in the next decade in Norway, New Aker Hospital will provide Oslo’s residents with a broad palette of healthcare services in new, future-proof settings, and is included in the long-term plans for Oslo University Hospital (OUS). The project involves both new build and re-design of a listed building, focusing on the overall vision to strengthen OUS and create a strong local hospital serving the districts in the northern part of the Norwegian capital.

The hospital will be a large emergency care hospital with modern treatment options. Among other things, it will hold a large, new accident and emergency department, maternity ward, image diagnostics centre, as well as psychiatric unit and facilities for treatment of substance addiction. Having somatic and psychiatric departments as well as substance addiction facilities in the same building will support a holistic healthcare offer.
