Pediatric emergency ward in the new hospital building

The pediatric emergency ward at the Astrid Lindgren Children’s Hospital, Karolinska University Hospital in Solna, has moved to Anna Steckséns gata 35.

Why is the pediatric emergency ward moving to a new hospital building?

Right now, the largest changes ever are under way in Stockholm's health and medical care services. Healthcare must become more efficient, even better and more accessible for the large and growing population in our county. A part of this is that Stockholm County Council is improving and expanding the hospitals, a central part of which is Karolinska University Hospital's entirely new hospital building in Solna, which we will begin to move into in autumn 2016.

How am I affected as a patient?

As of Sunday, November 27, at 6:00 a.m., the pediatric emergency ward at Karolinska University Hospital in Solna will be in the new hospital building at Anna Steckséns gata 35. At the same time, 6:00 a.m. Sunday November 27, the pediatric emergency ward closed its old facilities at the Astrid Lindgren Children's Hospital in Solna.

How can I get to and where can I park at the new pediatric emergency ward?

There is a parking garage at Eugeniavägen 23, under the new hospital building, the entrance of which is marked with a "parkering" sign. A larger parking garage is at Framstegsgatan 9 with the entrance on Karolinska vägen. From the parking garage, it is a short walk to the new hospital building.

The closest bus stop is called Karolinska Institutet östra. You can also take a bus to the bus square at Karolinska University Hospital Solna and walk through the hospital campus.
