We provide healthcare on behalf of Region Stockholm. Our healthcare centres and clinics are many people’s first point of contact with the healthcare system. We have around 12,000 employees.
Every year, we cater for around 5 million outpatient visits, and around 600,000 days of care for inpatients. This makes us one of Sweden’s biggest care providers.
We have a presence in most of the municipalities in Stockholm County, and in all urban districts of Stockholm. Stockholm County is home to around 2 million people.
We have a lot of responsibility, which means we must work to make continual improvements to the care we provide. It is our belief that care is better when decisions are made in close consultation with patients and those close to them. All of our units work with a large amount of autonomy and have responsibility for their own results.
The objective is that our employees shall have the necessary conditions to provide the right care in the right way in their daily work. To achieve this, we must all work with a clear focus – both in our own work and with consideration to other care providers.
Our vision, our values and our business policies form the basis of our work to set objectives for our operations.
We are a tax-financed public administration, and we place great importance on transparency and the public’s right to freedom of access.
