  • Serving Citizens Across the Region

    Region Zealand safeguards tasks, services and interests for a total of 820.000 citizens.

    The wide range of services is spread out across 22 cities in the Region. There are seven somatic hospitals along with a variety of psychiatric services in the region.

    Politics and Organisation

    The Political and administrative responsibilities reside in Regionshuset in Sorø.

    Region Zealand is overseen by Regionsrådet (The Regional Council) which consists of 41 politicians, who were publicly elected in November 2009. Council meetings, which are open to the public, are held once a month. When needed political ad hoc committees are established to shed light on current tasks or different areas of interest, and present their assessments to the council.

    The many tasks at the institutions in the region and in Regionshuset are carried out in a dynamic interaction between the various units of the organisation. Managers and heads of ten administrative  areas and seven cross disciplinary areas, along with the three members of the executive committee, constitute the corporate management of Region Zealand.


    Region Zealand has a budget of around 17 billion Danish kroner. The region is not financed by imposing taxes but given money from the state and the local councils, according to a centrally marked out calculation model. The money is spent on i.a. busses, trains, business development, environmental tasks and the running of social institutions. However, most of the money is spent on hospitals, psychiatric units and other expenses, related to national health services.
