Bornholms Hospital

Bornholms Hospital (English: Hospital of Bornholm) is a hospital on the Danish island of Bornholm's city of Rønne. Administratively, it falls under the domain of the Capital Region of Denmark along with hospitals in the greater Copenhagen area and northern Zealand. It serves a population of under 40,000 (2017) on Bornholm and Ertholmene.[1] The hospital also physically hosts a mental health centre, which however administratively sorts under the psychiatric hospital of Region Hovedstadens Psykiatri. Even before it became a part of the Capital Region of Denmark, some patients from the hospital were flown by helicopter to Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen Municipality.
