Welcome to Region Stockholm
Region Stockholm is responsible for all publicly-financed healthcare and public transport in Stockholm County. The Region Stockholm Assembly is also responsible for other overall issues within the county, such as regional planning and cultural subsidies.
Greater Stockholm is Sweden's leading region and financial centre. Today, the region attracts people from other countries, visitors and investors. It ranks highly in terms of quality of life – public health is good, and the level of education is high.
Region Stockholm is one of Europe's largest healthcare providers, offering everything from telephone advice about self-care to advanced specialist care at university hospitals.
Public transport in Stockholm County should be easily accessible, reliable and environmentally friendly. AB Storstockholms Lokaltrafik (Stockholm Public Transport, SL), Waxholmsbolaget and Färdtjänsten are responsible for transport services. The number of travellers rises each year.
Region Stockholm plays an important part in the region's development, and several major projects and investments are currently being carried out.
Culture strengthens the Stockholm region and makes it attractive to residents, visitors and investors. Art can help to create more healing healthcare environments. Region Stockholm contributes to a wide cultural activity and is also the main financier of the Stockholm Concert Hall and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
Residents of our region will meet art and different cultural expressions in hospitals and within health care, in public transportation, especially in the underground stations. Art contributes to the well-being and safety of people's everyday lives.
