The emergency department is located at the Eastern side of the healthcare building, facing Anna Stecksén's street. The red glass façade will be decorated with art work.
The heliport can accommodate two helicopters at the same time. Elevators provide quick access to the trauma department on floor 5.
The entrance hall is situated adjacent to Solnavägen and facing towards the Karolinska square. It is three storeys high and provides a bright and welcoming environment.
New Karolinska Solna puts the patient’s safety, privacy and comfort first – for example by introducing single rooms with private bathrooms as standard for all inpatients.

New Karolinska Solna (NKS) is the project name for the state-of-the-art hospital currently under construction next to Karolinska University Hospital in Solna. The new university hospital opened its doors to the first patients in November 2016. It will be fully operational in 2018. NKS is being built to be able to meet the demands of the future in relation to health and medical care – with a greater focus on the patient's needs, faster provision of care, and increased patient safety with single rooms for all inpatients.
