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.

The vision for BørneRiget
Key numbers about the project
A unique partnership
Shared principles will replace the many different approaches so that, going forward, Rigshospitalet will not be perceived as “10 different realms”
Thanks to a DKK 4 million donation to BørneRiget from TrygFonden, the hospital is now able to develop “Kroppens Rige” [body realm] – a series of installations where children and their families can play their way to an understanding of the body, disease and clinical examinations while they are in hospital.
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.
Games and other digital experiences will help hospitalized children and adolescents make new friends and improve their hospital experience.
