Several of Region Västra Götaland’s 18 hospitals provide both emergency and planned treatment in a number of specialised fields. In order to maintain a high level of quality and safety, emergency treatment is concentrated to certain hospitals. Other hospitals specialise in planned care and have developed profiles of their own.
Sahlgrenska University Hospital, SU, is the largest hospital in Northern Europe and is responsible for specialised diagnostics and treatment. SU collaborates closely with the Sahlgrenska Academy at the University of Gothenburg and is responsible for the clinical training of nurses and doctors.
The heath care in Västra Götaland is divided into four different geographical areas, with several hospitals in each area.
