The Emergency and Infectious Diseases Unit – Skåne University Hospital (SUS) designed by Arkitektfirmaet C. F. Møller is located in Malmö, Sweden. Patients enter the isolation ward via a special airlock leading from the top floor corridor that encircles the building. External lifts are provided exclusively for infectious patients and removal of hospital waste – with internal lifts for staff movements and incoming supplies. In addition, individual floors can be subdivided into smaller isolation units in the event of an epidemic.
Treatment is carried out efficiently and safely, in accordance with the highest national and international standards. With its facilities for treating all types of acute patients, the casualty department at Skåne University Hospital is the largest and busiest accident and emergency facility in Sweden. The entire casualty department has been planned with optimal logistics in mind – focusing on the patient and on the potential for staff teamwork.
