Ascom Wireless Solutions wins in a public bid an order of about CHF 1.4 million from the new Swedish hospital Nya Karolinska Solna to deliver advanced healthcare communication solutions.
The agreement is a cooperation between Ascom and Telia and is a part of the Stockholm County Council investment in a new world-class university hospital, Nya Karolinska Solna (NKS). The new hospital will have 630 beds and will be located in Solna, close to Stockholm. The hospital will receive its first patients during 2016.
