Great progress in the Lapland Central Hospital extension
The extension of the Lapland Central Hospital moves ahead as the project alliance members signed the contract for the construction of a psychiatric hospital on November 1oth. It will be complete in 2023. The wards of the hospital will face a wooded park thus bringing the natural landscape part of healing. That is one of the patient-centered features in Verstas Architects’ hospital design.
Furthermore, the Lapland Hospital District decided on the construction of the second stage of the hospital extension. In the second stage, a new building and an internal street connects the various parts of the hospital campus. The new building will also contain outpatient clinics and a renewed main entrance. Its sweeping form echoes the northern landscape, while a wooden façade enlivens the atmosphere of the hospital.
