Princess Mary of Denmark Opens Expansion of Herlev Hospital

The crown Princess Mary of Denmark recently opened the new Herlev Hospital’s Emergency Room and Woman-Child Center.

With the new Emergency Room and Woman-Child Center, the hospital will be expanded by a total of 56,000 m2. The new framework offers, among other things, a common emergency room, almost 300 new single rooms and green surroundings. The buildings consist of two square bases with round floors upstairs. The two bases are connected by the hospital’s new main entrance.

Her Royal Highness presided over the official inauguration of the new Herlev Hospital by cutting the red ribbon.

After the official inauguration, the Crown Princess was shown around the new Emergency Wing where she was shown one of the hospital’s trauma rooms.

On the hospital’s 5th floor, the Crown Princess took part in a tour of a bed section and was shown a bedroom. The three-round bedroom floors in the emergency rooms consist of 81 bedrooms on each floor. All bedrooms are single rooms and have views of the green areas.

The newly created green areas have been designed to contribute to a healing and sensory experience for the hospital’s patients.

The gardens have been designed with different themes in mind, and in connection with the inauguration, the Crown Princess visited the “Primeval Forest”, which has been planted in the form of a lush garden with tall trees and shrubs.
