Feasibility study

The preparatory work for the new hospital has taken two years and is documented in several reports.

​The feasibility study includes:

  • Mapping of 100 courses of individual patient pathways and the design of future patient pathways based on four archetypes.

  • Task groups numbering more than 200 staff have made recommendations for the future paediatric intensive care unit, surgery unit, bed unit, outpatient unit, home treatment, laboratory unit and the integration of treatment, education and research.

  • Visits to all quality foundation hospitals of Denmark to exchange experience.

  • Study trips to a total of 21 hospitals in Scandinavia, Europe, Canada, USA and Australia result in reports highlighting areas that can make the future hospital for mothers and children wholly unique.

  • Participation in the international conference on hospital architecture and design in November 2014 in San Diego, USA. A summary report of the 53 different sessions that the project team covered during the four days of the conference has been prepared and used as inspiration 

  • Design of the future user experience in close collaboration with patients, families and staff.

  • 'User camp' organized for 25 patients, relatives and staff. Report published in book form – 'BørneRiget'.

  • Screening of the marked for short-, medium- and long-term technological solutions.

  • 'Building camp' attended by 130 patients, relatives and staff who designed sections and rooms for the future building.

  • Involvement of patients, families and relatives in all phases of the feasibility study from initial steering committee meeting to individual activity planning, including establishing a permanent user panel.

This feasibility study provides the basis for the project content and design.
