Investors who have purchased a closed lung hospital outside of Oslo offer the state to rent the property to treat corona patients.

The facility is located in Nittedal municipality in Viken county. It used to house the Glitre Clinic until the National Association for Heart and Lung Disease moved the facility to new premises in Jessheim two years ago. The owners, Øystein Tvenge and the brothers Kristian and Roger Adolfsen, now offer the state to rent the hospital, Finansavisen reports.

– “We have made the state aware that we have 14,000 square meters of hospitals available. We have 140 beds. In addition, we have a flat site where we can set up a temporary field hospital with 200 beds. It can be a good solution,” says Øystein Tvenge.

According to Tvenge, the plan is for Nittedal municipality to use the premises for health services, but the investors have not signed any agreement on this. He states that he has proposed to the health authority Health South-East that the premises can be used for coronavirus infected, and that the municipality can then wait.

Glitre sanatorium was built in 1925.
