Hvidovre Hospital – Wards

In connection with a new ward project at Hvidovre Hospital, Copenhagen the hospital will get around 90 new patient rooms that will optimize the opportunities for what a ward can do. The result will improve the conditions, and add value to the ward experience at Hvidovre – not only for patients, but also for their relatives and the hospital staff.

A key aim of the conversion of the wards is to upgrade four-bed wards to patient rooms for one to two patients. The rooms will be designed for one patient, with space for one relative to stay overnight, but may also be used by two patients. This ensures flexible capacity in terms of the number of patients admitted.

The new patient rooms will be in light, warm colours, to give the clinical space a more homely dimension. Several new technical installations will also make patient’s lives easier, including adjustable-height toilets. Special windowpanes will give a view to the corridor, but will also be designed so that the patient just needs to press a button to make the pane opaque, signalling a wish for privacy.

The forthcoming conversion of wards at Hvidovre Hospital is part of the New Hospital Hvidovre Quality Fund project. This project also includes the conversion of outpatient clinics and expansion of the hospital by 30,000 m² of new construction.
