This autumn St. Erik Eye Hospital is relocating to Hagastaden

21 February 2020

In September 2020 St. Erik Eye Hospital will be relocating from Kungsholmen to Hagastaden in Stockholm. Moving into the rapidly growing life science cluster in Hagastaden will offer greater opportunities for providing eye patients with the best eye care in Sweden.

The new St. Erik Eye Hospital building in Hagastaden.

St. Erik Eye Hospital has been commissioned by Region Stockholm to deliver highly specialised ophthalmological care, and to conduct research and development. The new location nearby Karolinska University Hospital and Karolinska Institutet will contribute to a more extensive exchange of knowledge and resources within healthcare, research and education.

St. Erik's current premises at Kungsholmen were renovated 30 years ago and are no longer fit for the purpose, as ophthalmological care services and research activities have expanded fastly. As a renovation of the existing premises would lead to major costs, Region Stockholm made the decision in 2016 to relocate St. Erik Eye Hospital to a new hospital building in Hagastaden’s life science cluster.

The new premises are being built from scratch and the building design has been developed in close collaboration between the eye hospital and the builder. All to achieve specially adapted facilities that better meet current – and future – patient needs and working practices.

The vision is that St. Erik will become the foundation for an Eye Centre of Excellence, in close collaboration with other stakeholders within healthcare, academia and the business community.

From September, 2020, the new St. Erik Eye Hospital address will be Eugeniavägen 12.
