HCR provided a variety of Transition Planning Services to The Stockholm County Council that enabled the Phase 4 occupancy of Sweden’s first P3 project in healthcare during 2017.
In Phase 4, HCR guided the Facility Activation planning in preparation for the occupancy of the first one-third of the new 330,000 m² NKS building. This mandate also included the orientation and training plan development and assistance with a Retreat Day to review the final operational readiness and facility activation plans for the new building.
In addition, HCR undertook the planning for the relocation of all assets and patients from the 2 legacy sites moving to the new building in this phase of the project – the Adult Thoracic Hospital and the Children’s Hospital. Included in the patient relocation planning was assistance with a Service Level Reduction Plan in support of the patient moves and a post-move Service Level Recovery plan.
Over a period of just under 3 weeks, HCR coordinated the sequential execution of the physical move from the 2 legacy facilities into the first third of this 730 bed facility. The patient transfers were safely completed a week apart as planned, and supported the successful relocation of high acuity adult patients, including transplant patients, on the first Sunday of the move, and children’s patients on the following Sunday.
Currently, HCR is engaged in performance of the contract to provide services for the final phases of the transition (phases 5, 5b and 6), to be completed in 2018. These phases involve the relocation of biomedical research, radiotherapy clinics and clinical operations into approximately 220,000 m².
In all, Karolinska University Hospital has approximately 1595 beds, produces approximately 110,000 admissions per year, has about 1.6 million patient visits per year, has an annual budget of 15 billion Swedish crowns and employs about 16,000 employees.
