The artist Michael Thornqvist, born and raised in Malmö, will be on the Q-bital stand, DO6, presenting his latest painting, which is inspired by the healthcare facilities built by Q-bital Healthcare Solutions. Visitors to the stand will be able to enter a draw, with the lucky winner taking ownership of Michael's new creation. Q-bital's inspirational modular buildings include the beautiful and fantastic operating rooms at Skåne University Hospital (SUS), Malmö, Sweden, which were described recently by a clinician working there as 'like entering a spaceship'. The operating rooms are equipped with the most advanced surgical lights and pendants, and an Opragon ultra-clean air system was installed to reduce the risk of infection during surgery. The operating rooms were validated according to the latest Swedish regulations: the entire operating room was tested for <10 CFU/m3, to ensure a safe, ultra-clean operating environment.
This interim facility had to be integrated with the existing operating room department on the third floor of the hospital. A precision engineered, steel construction was aligned exactly with the existing complex, ensuring a seamless extension. Q-bital completed the entire project from start to finish within just 10 months, to specification and within budget. The facility will serve the hospital for a period of seven to ten years, providing increased capacity, efficiency and safety, 24 hours a day. Another of Q-bital's original works of art can be seen at the Northern Älvsborg County Hospital (NÄL). Four rooms replace some of the existing operating rooms during a major three-year renovation project. Work to prepare the ground next to the hospital started in mid-March 2021. About a month later, 54 modules arrived from the Q-bital factory in Holland via truck and boat, and were put in place with a large crane, over the weekend. These modules were used to build four operating rooms with corresponding preparation rooms, a material storage room that is 50 m2, a sterile storage room of 25 m2, disinfection rooms and a long corridor from the existing building to the operating facilities. This allows personnel to maintain a workflow that is similar to the one to which they are accustomed. At the end of June 2021, the final inspection was completed.
Michael Thornqvist has taken these and other Q-bital installations as inspiration for his latest painting in the abstract genre. His paintings in this field are passionate, subjective, emotional, imaginative and expressive. Art is one way for Michael to express his feelings and thoughts and he invites you to come and talk with him and to view his new artwork on the Q-bital stand. If you visit our stand, his fine new painting could soon be hanging on your wall.
