Sygehus Sønderjylland

Sygehus Sønderjylland


The Region of Southern Denmark is the westernmost of the Danish administrative regions, and is subdivided into 22 municipalities. The Southern part of Jutland consists of four municipalities: Tønder, Aabenraa, Haderslev and Sønderborg and a coverage area of approx. 235.000 inhabitants. Sygehus Sønderjylland is not a new hospital, although the hospital was first named Sygehus Sønderjylland in 2007.
