Skanska has signed an agreement with Region Skåne to build a new care building and a new service building at the hospital in Hässleholm, Sweden. 

The care and service buildings will form a single continuous structure spanning approximately 24,000 square meters. The care building will house reception areas, operating theaters, orthopedic aftercare facilities, sterile technology units, and administrative offices. The service building will accommodate goods reception functions, including meal intake, cold and freezer storage, liquid storage, laundry handling, gas storage, and waste management. Additionally, it will provide staff areas and administrative offices. The care building's frame will utilize climate-improved concrete for both frame and cast-in-place constructions.

The development of the new sections of the Hässleholm hospital area, known as the "Future Orthopedics in Hässleholm" (FORTH) project, has been in progress for an extended period. The contract, valued at around SEK 1.4 billion (US$ 129 million), will be included in Sweden's order bookings for Q2 of 2024. Preparatory activities are set to commence in the spring, with construction slated to start in April 2024. The buildings are expected to be finished by the first half of 2028.
