At Karolinska, we promote innovation combining clinical research, emerging technologies and partnerships with the vast experience and knowledge of our staff and patients.

Innovations improving specialized care

We intend to optimize every aspect of specialized care – processes and procedures as well as treatments and equipment. Our goal is to create the best possible care for our patients – while also improving conditions for the healthcare personnel.

Re-invent healthcare as we know it

The vision of Karolinska University Hospital is to cure and relieve tomorrow what no one can cure and relieve today. Pushing the boundaries of healthcare is part of our everyday work – always aiming high. Not only will we generate greater patient value together with our partners, but also discover and create new forms of value.
