About Angered Hospital
Our mission is to serve our community with accessible, welcoming, quality health care based on the needs of the local residents.
We aim to make a difference, and for that purpose we employ the latest technology, conduct innovative research, and collaborate extensively not least by cultivating an open dialogue with the local residents.
Human rights-based approach
Angered Hospital’s work is human rights-based, which means that we work to respect, protect, promote, and realise human rights, and in particular the right to health, for all residents and patients. We do so by ensuring that our healthcare services are available, accessible, acceptable, and of good quality (AAAQ). Our work is further based on the principles of equality and non-discrimination, participation and inclusion, and accountability.
Angered Hospital has a unique public health and health promoting assignment which entails promoting health equity among residents and patients as well as employees. Public health interventions, which are implemented in collaboration with community, regional, and national partners, are based on national public health objectives and policies as well as the needs of the population. Outreach activities are a central component of our health promoting work.
