The National Hospital of the Faroe Islands
Landssjúkrahúsið is the Main Hospital in the Faroe Islands, specialising in 29 health care areas. Our aim is to offer the Faroese population and international patients a high quality health service in as many areas as possible. In those areas of health care where the hospital is not specialised, our aim is to offer patients the best possible treatment through close co-operation with other hospitals in the Nordic region.
The management is formed with a CEO, two deputy CEO, (respectively a Medical Executive and a Nursing Executive) served by 4 staff units (Administrative department, HR&Communication and development, Clinical Staff unit and International Patients Services). The hospital is divided into five treatment centers, each of which is led by a management team with independent administrative and financial responsibility, and a Service Centre, lead by a manager. The treatment centers are: Medical Center, Surgical Center, Psychiatric Center, Emergency Center and Diagnostic Center.
Landssjúkrahúsið, originally named Dronning Alexandrines Hospital after the Danish Queen, was founded in 1924. In the 1960’s the hospital was expanded and officially declared the National Hospital of the Faroe Islands. The last large expansion of the hospital was completed in 2004. It enlarged the hospitals physical area by 5.600 well equipped square meters containing among others a whole new department of surgery, emergency unit, laboratory and medical outpatient clinic. Landssjúkrahúsið uses an Electronic Health Record (Cosmic Gambio) system that connects the entire national health service.
