The Oulu University Hospital 2030 project is carried out in two stages. The first stage includes the main hospital which houses emergency services, intensive care units, operating rooms, maternity services and other related services. Building A by NCC will house the most demanding care facilities at the University Hospital, such as operating rooms, intensive care units, observation rooms, obstetrics units, confinement units, pressure-controlled patient rooms, IVF laboratory facilities and artificial kidney care.
The new hospital is built to the Oulu University area in Kontinkangas, approximately two kilometers from the Oulu city center.
The project is implemented as an alliance project in which the buyer, end users, builders and a team of construction and design experts are responsible for the design and implementation of the project through in cooperation. The parties share the risks of the project and work together to achieve common goals. One of the main goals of the new hospital is the flexibility of conversion and operation, which will allow the premises to be adapted in the future in accordance with operational changes. Another important goal is to emphasize user and customer focus in project design and implementation. The new facilities will enable the operation of the entire hospital to be developed for both patients and staff.
The first stage A building is the 10 storey main hospital building of approximately 58,700 brm². The contracted demolition work started in 2017 and the last demolitions were made in early 2019, after which the actual construction work commenced in March 2019. The hospital buildings included in the first stage will be completed by the end of 2023. Then the new Oulu University Hospital will have 450 hospital beds and 90 intensive care units.
