NUHS examines hospital sustainability innovations

The primary objectives of NUHS’s visit were to delve deeper into the understanding of two key aspects: firstly, how the establishment of synergies between care, education, and research is accomplished, providing insight into the characteristics of a mature Academic Health System.

Secondly, a deep dive into the design of Karolinska University Hospital is sought to ascertain how it fosters optimal patient care while aligning with sustainability goals, including areas such as materials management and energy efficiency.

Furthermore, looking beyond a singular focus on any specific institution, another aspect of the visit was to gain valuable insights from academic faculty members regarding the complex dynamics of collaboration between Clinical Care, Education, and Research within Karolinska Institutet.
