Children’s Hospital Copenhagen
The Capital Region of Denmark, Rigshospitalet and Ole Kirk’s Foundation have joined forces in a partnership to build a new public hospital that sets new standards for the treatment of children, adolescents, pregnant women and their families. The title of the project is: BørneRiget - Children’s Hospital Copenhagen.

Key numbers about the project
A unique partnership
Thanks to a grant from the Novo Nordisk Foundation worth DKK 3,567,000, BørneRiget is now able to develop a virtual gaming universe for long-term hospitalised children and young people, where, among other things, they can grow virtual monster plants and play with them. The donation also secures research into the effects of virtual gaming.
Nine specialties at Rigshospitalet have been working together to improve patient pathways for children and young people with congenital cranial and facial deformities. This has resulted in fewer visits for patients, and happier families.
Shared principles will replace the many different approaches so that, going forward, Rigshospitalet will not be perceived as “10 different realms”
When BørneRiget – Rigshospitalet’s new hospital building for children, young people and expectant mothers – opens its doors in 2025, the hospital’s flexible design will ensure it is able to look after twice as many patients during any epidemics like coronavirus.
