Largest emergency department in Denmark
Odense University Hospital has the largest Emergency Department in Denmark. All emergency units are gathered in one building, including the Trauma Centre, the Emergency Ward, a community service operated by general practitioners, a reception area and an outpatient clinic. We also have a bed unit, and a research unit.
When organising the unit, we have focused on logistics, flow and standardisation in a way that has never been seen before in Denmark. in cooperation with private partners, we have developed logistics tools which support patient-flow in order to reach a tentative diagnose within 4 hours. We succeed in doing this in nearly 80 % of all cases.
Our main research areas are clinical epidemiological and interventional studies.
