The new acute care hospital in Gødstrup will cover the entire western area of the Central Denmark Region. With this project Regional Hospital West Jutland will be brought together in one location instead of the current locations in Holstebro, Lemvig, Ringkøbing, Tarm, and Herning.
The hospital consists of a 127.000m2 somatic department, which is financed by Kvalitetsfonden, and a 13.500m2 psychiatric hospital, which is financed by the Central Denmark Region. The budget for the somatic part of the hospital amounts to DKK 3,30bn and DKK 0,4bn for the psychiatric part. The building process began in September 2012 and is expected ready for use in March 2021.
The main vision of the project was made clear by the hospital administration, the main employee committee, and the head of departments: The New Hospital in Gødstrup will be the patient’s hospital.
