Sahlgrenska University Hospital (SU) provides emergency and basic care for the Göteborg region, and its 700,000 inhabitants.
 
It is a highly specialised care unit for West Sweden, with 1.7 million inhabitants. SU is well known for its successful transplant activity, treatment of cardio-vascular diseases, immunology (research into rejection mechanisms) as well as research into vaccines. The Hospital was founded in 1997 when three hospitals in the region were merged in to one and since 1999 SU is a part of the Västra Götaland Region. SU is one of six teaching hospitals with medical education in Sweden. The hospital provides an infrastructure necessary for teaching and research in cooperation with the Sahlgrenska Academy at the University of Gothenburg. In 1986 a unit for hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) was established at SU. It is situated at, and administered by, the Department of Anaesthesiology and Intensive care, Region East. It is a major referral center for NSTIs in the West of Sweden. It is estimated that about 1700 HBOT sessions will be given in the Hyperbaric chamber during 2011.
