Espoo Hospital

Espoo Hospital is an expert in the care and rehabilitation of the elderly and provides a support service for living at home.

The wards usually admit patients based on a doctor’s assessment at the emergency room or in specialised health care. The patient must have a need for hospital care that does not require specialised medical care.
