Privatsykehuset Haugesund AS
is a government-authorized hospital offering hospital-quality operating and recovery rooms. We have new high-quality medical equipment and top-qualified personnel that are present at all operations. In November 2004, the hospital received ISO approval for our services in orthopedics and ophthalmology. As a patient at Haugesund Private Hospital, you can therefore be assured that all treatment is carried out at a highly professional level.


We strive to have a high standard for our services where the proper care of our patients is our primary goal. Therefore, all patients receiving surgical treatment from us are given the opportunity to comment on our services through patient satisfaction surveys. These surveys are an important tool in our evaluation of the hospital?s quality.


Privatsykehuset Haugesund AS. is co-located and works closely with Haugesund Medisinske Senter AS, which is involved in general practice, occupational medicine, and otolaryngology (ear, nose, and throat disorders), as well as having a large department for physiotherapy. Privatsykehuset Haugesund AS was established in the spring of 1997 and includes individual sections for ophthalmology, cardiology, rheumatology, dermatology, plastic surgery, and orthopedics.

Aesthetic Plastic Surgery:

Plastic surgery strives for lines, forms and proportions. We have created a concept where we will design the plastic surgery after your requirements. The techniques are designed to counteract aging and to seek a natural look. We want to develop a holistic approach to thinking within plastic surgery, based on beauty, security and quality.

All the plastic surgeons you will meet have a solid experience of university hospitals in research, teaching and advanced reconstructive surgery.

Orthopaedic Department:

The Orthopaedic Department has its own hospital ward with four beds as well as an extensive outpatient surgery practice. The patients admitted to the ward, have mostly had operations for implanting prosthetic joints in their hips or knees. They receive their meals from the best gourmet restaurant in town; Lothes Mat & Vinhus.

Orthopaedic Department:

Our orthopaedic surgeon is specialised in prosthetic surgery, endoscopic surgery (?keyhole surgery?) and sports medicine.
We have a new surgical ward with advanced equipment for this purpose.

Radiology Department:

There is not waiting list. The radiology department carries out x-rays, CT scans, ultrasound, mammography, bone density measuring and MRI scans.

IVF & Fertility Center: 

Our philosophy is to offer a patient-centered care. The effectiveness of any care depends on finding the best options and treatment for each particular couple. At Hausken Fertility Center we work towards developing a plan that helps you find the treatment that works best for you. We can not offer you donor treatment. This is not allowed in Norway. Our age limit is 44 years.

Ophthalmic/Eye Department:

The Ophthalmology Section handles all types of eye-related problems. The section has its own surgical unit where we treat patients with cataracts and perform various sight-correcting procedures. We possess the most advanced laser on the market for operating on near- sightedness and long-sightedness. We can also perform operations for treating severe vision impairment using a technique known as ICL implantation. ReStor? is a new revolutionary way to treat presbyopi.

Department of Urology:

We not only offer urological assessment and treatment, but can also perform general surgical procedures such as hernia repairs and varicose veins

We can offer private treatment with urological examination and surgery.
A referral from your doctor is not necessary but may be an advantage.
