The executive council meeting elects board members with the exception of the chairperson and one other member to be selected by separate appointment from the Royal Court of Sweden. These two individuals also sit on the executive council.
Four board entities have been established to prepare matters for discussion by the board and to enable the delegation of specific tasks. They are the University, Hospital, Research and Capital committees, all of which operate in accordance with set instructions.
Sophiahemmet, ideell förening (SHIF) is the group’s parent organisation.
The SHIF’s educational activities are conducted by Sophiahemmet University. Continuing Professional Development activities are conducted by the wholly owned subsidiary Sophiahemmet Uppdragsutbildning AB (SHUAB), which constitutes part of the university.
Healthcare activities are conducted by the wholly owned subsidiary Sophiahemmet AB (SHAB) either under its own management or through partnered healthcare providers. Together they constitute Sophiahemmet Hospital.
Sophiahemmet also conducts point-of-care research.
