Welcome to Uppsala University Hospital
Uppsala University Hospital
Akademiska sjukhuset, Uppsala University Hospital, is Sweden's oldest University Hospital. The first department was established as early as 1708.
We have a long tradition of being first. Sweden´s first nurse was trained here and Nobel Prize winners have researched here. The first Nordic appendectomy was performed here and the first integrated children´s hospital was built here. It is a characteristic of the activities here always to look for new, innovative solutions. We make the best use of new technology, new scientific findings and new ways of working in order to solve medical problems and to continuously improve the way we take care of our patients.
