Region Hovedstadens Psykiatri
() is a psychiatric hospital
with centers spread all around the capital region
, mainly consisting of Copenhagen
, northern Zealand
, and Bornholm
Hospitals in Denmark are run by the administrative regions
which came into effect with the municipal reform
on January 1, 2007. Some months later, the psychiatry
were administratively split apart, meaning that psychiatric departments of hospitals would no longer be under administration of the hospital they had been attached to. Instead, all the psychiatric departments in Region Hovedstaden would sort under a region-wide entity called Region Hovedstadens Psykiatri
, which would in all matters be equivalent to more traditional hospitals, except that it wouldn't have a single location.
Most notably, Region Hovedstadens Psykiatri encompasses former psychiatric wards from such hospitals as Amager Hospital
, Bispebjerg Hospital
, Frederiksberg Hospital
, Glostrup Hospital
, Herlev Hospital
, Hvidovre Hospital
. Though the psychiatric Sct. Hans Hospital
does not geographically sort under Region Hovedstaden, it belongs to Region Hovedstadens Psykiatri administratively as well.
Region Hovedstadens Psykiatri has about 5,000 employees, and treats about 35,000 patients with mental disorders
each year, which is about 40 % of the total psychiatric treatment given in Denmark.
