1938 - Novo opens Hvidøre Diabetiker Sanatorium
Novo Terapeutisk Laboratorium founds Hvidøre Diabetiker Sanatorium at Hvidøre Castle north of Copenhagen. In addition to receiving treatment, people with diabetes learn how they can optimize living with the disease. For many people, this means that they can lead nearly normal lives when they return home. Hvidøre also becomes the centre for research and clinical trials of Novo’s new products. In 1949, the Sanatorium changes its name to Hvidøre Hospital.
