Rigshospitalet, Copenhagen, Denmark

Rigshospitalet is Denmark's international hospital, which offers highly specialized treatment of citizens in Denmark, the Faroe Islands and Greenland. Rigshospitalet was merged with Glostrup Hospital on 1 January 2015 and is thus the country's largest hospital, where the top experts and researchers ensure that the hospital in its treatment, research and education can measure with the best in Europe. Rigshospitalet is organized in eight centers led by a joint management.

Rigshospitalet's historical background goes back to Denmark's first real hospital, "The Royal Frederiks Hospital", which was established to care and treat poor Copenhageners by attachment. The hospital opened in 1757 and was located in Bredgade, where you can find the Kunstindustrimuseet today. In 1910, the hospital became part of the state and moved to its current location on Blegdamsvej. The hospital also changed its name to Rigshospitalet, as it should be available to all citizens of the Kingdom in the future. The modern Rigshospital, with its tall gray buildings, dates from the 1960s and is today part of the Capital Region.
