Sabbatsberg Hospital (Swedish:Sabbatsbergs Sjukhus) is a hospital in Vasastan, Stockholm. It was opened in 1879.[1]

In 1986, Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme was pronounced dead at 00:06 CET on March 1 at Sabbatsbergs Hospital, after having been shot in the street earlier that night.[2]

The emergency clinic at Sabbatsberg closed in 1994. It is no longer operated as a hospital, although some healthcare-related activities are still located on the grounds, which partially have been rebuilt as housing.[3]

Some of the scenes in the film The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo were shot in the hospital.[4]
