“Riget” hospital, Copenhagen, Denmark

Rigshospitalet, or simply Riget (as in Lars von Trier's mini-series The Kingdom) - is The Kingdom Hospital in Denmark, situated in Copenhagen. It is part of the Copenhagen University Hospital together with the faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Copenhagen.

Rigshospitalet's mission is to be Denmark's leading hospital for patients needing highly specialized treatment.. Rigshospitalet's main specialist role has been enhanced in recent years by the decision that it should serve as the host institution for many of Copenhagen's speciality departments. Because of this, other hospitals refer patients to Rigshospitalet for the unique expertise available there. Rigshospitalet’s neighbor, Panum Institute, houses the Health Sciences Faculty of Copenhagen University, and this proximity optimizes a close cooperation between the two in the fields of research and development. The Nordic Cochrane Centre and the University Centre for Nursing and Care Research is placed within Rigshospitalet.
