Aarhus University Hospital admitted to 'The European University Hospital Alliance' (EUHA)

 As the only Danish hospital, AUH has been admitted to alliance of leading university hospitals.


On November 28th 2022, the steering committee of The European University Hospital Alliance (EUHA) decided to admit Aarhus University Hospital and Universitätsspital Zürich Schweiz as new members of EUHA.

The European University Hospital Alliance is a network of some of Europe's leading university hospitals in treatment, education and research with a total of over 220,000 employees.

EUHA was formed in 2017 by nine university hospitals from different European countries who saw possibilities and advantages in strengthening their expertise and innovation by sharing expert knowledge and experience with other strong university hospitals.

- The hospitals in the alliance each have their own strengths, and are therefore a strong support for each other through mutual inspiration, benchmarks and joint projects for further development of the treatment services. But just like us, they have challenges with staffing, recruitment and retention, where they help each other find solutions, says Poul Blaabjerg, CEO of Aarhus University Hospital.

The purpose of EUHA is, among other things, to promote excellence and innovation in treatment, research and education by comparing practice and results, giving staff the opportunity to exchange knowledge and collaborate on research and development projects.

Among other things, it is the national and international commitment from Aarhus University Hospital that has led to the invitation on behalf of Denmark.

- It is a great recognition of the professional level at AUH and of our collaboration with Aarhus University that we are invited to join the alliance, and it gives us some fantastic collaboration opportunities. This is the first time The European University Hospital Alliance is inviting new members, says Chief Medical Officer at Aarhus University Hospital, Claus Thomsen.
