About the Project

​The new and modern urban hospital of the Copenhagen City area is being established on the "Bispebjerg Bakke" site, in order to provide more than 450,000 citizens with world-class treatment of both body and mind. 

The New Hospital Bispebjerg in the City of Copenhagen is a major merger between Frederiksberg Hospital and Bispebjerg Hospital. Also being built on the site is a new Mental Health Centre.​

The hospital development project comprises construction of a total of approximately 108,000 square metres new buildings.

Five sub-projects in progress

The construction project has a total budget of around € 610 m of which € 400 m is financed by the Danish Government's Quality Fund (Kvalitetsfonden). The Capital Region (Region Hovedstaden) will provide € 140m for the Mental Health Centre sub-project.

Three sub-projects are on the way:

  • A General Hospital Building (Akuthus). Construction period: 2021-2027.
  • A Mental Health Centre. Construction Period: 2018-2024.
  • Renovation of the existing buildings of Bispebjerg Hospital, approx. 37,000 m2.​ Construction period: From 2016.
Two sub-projects have already been completed:

  • A Car Park for 600 vehicles. Construction period: 2014-2015. 
  • A Laboratory and Logistics Building. Construction period: 2016-2018.


Tomorrow's Super Hospital

The new super hospital must operate at full capacity during the whole construction period. Therefore, the construction process has been planned thoroughly and will be executed by using the newest construction knowhow and technologies.

When completed, the hospital will bring together modern hospital functions, advanced hospital logistics, innovative architecture and cutting-edge technologies, providing more than 450,000 citizens with highly specialised treatment.

Around 5,000 employees will work at the New Hospital Bispebjerg.
