The facilities of Oulu University Hospital were completed in the 1970s and they do not no longer support modern hospital operations or the utilisation of new operational models and technology.
There is too little space, the functions are obtrusively apart and obvious renovation needs can be found in all the buildings in the area. The constant development of medicine, the growing expenses of hospital operations and the diminishing resources create their own pressures to the renewal of facilities and operations.
Due to the renovation and renewal need, the health care district launched, with the councils decision, the Future Hospital 2030 programme in June 2012, whereupon the facilities and operations of Oulu University Hospital are updated to respond to the needs of the present and the future. Local businesses and other campus area experts participate in the development and renewal of processes.
