History

History
Landssjúkrahúsið, originally named Dronning Alexandrines Hospital after the Danish Queen, was founded in 1924. In the 1960’s the hospital was expanded and officially declared the National Hospital of the Faroe Islands.
The last large expansion of the hospital was completed in 2004. It enlarged the hospitals physical area by 5.600 well equipped square meters containing among others a whole new department of surgery, emergency unit, laboratory and medical outpatient clinic.
A new building is being projected, which according to the plan will be completed by 2019, at the hospital's 95 anniversary.
Landssjúkrahúsið uses an Electronic Health Record (Cosmic Gambio) system that connects the entire national health service.
