Espoo Hospital is a forerunner in treatment and rehabilitation of the elderly
Espoo Hospital is a centre of excellence for treatment and rehabilitation of the elderly and a support service for patients returning home.
We treat elderly residents of Espoo, Kirkkonummi and Kauniainen. We have over 400 skilled professionals in care and rehabilitation.
Espoo Hospital is located in Jorvi and cooperates intensively with the specialized medical care at Jorvi Hospital (which is operated by the Helsinki and Uusimaa hospital district HUS).
The new Espoo Hospital
- Versatile and crossing boundaries. The hospital contains five wards (255 beds) and palliative care and terminal care at Villa Glims (15 beds). There is also a geriatric emergency ward in the Jorvi Hospital emergency and accidents building (22 beds). Services at Espoo Hospital also include rehabilitation and hospital services at home, outpatient clinics, a dental clinic and assistive equipment services. Espoo Hospital cooperates intensively with the specialized medical care at Jorvi Hospital (which is operated by the Helsinki and Uusimaa hospital district HUS) in the same hospital campus.
- For people, in daily life. The patient is in focus. We offer rehabilitation up to six hours a day. Next of kin and a personal coach take part in the rehabilitation of the patient. Single rooms for all patients offer privacy. Common rooms, remote access and tablet computers help patients stay connected to their daily lives.
- High quality and efficiency. Things run smoothly and fast: access to care, rehabilitation and back home in as good a shape as possible.
- Aesthetic and comfortable. Architecture, arts and nature bring joy, optimism and humour into the rehabilitation process. Works of art in the hospital sustain well-being for patients and personnel alike. Six pieces of custom made artwork have been planned for the hospital. In addition, patient rooms and other facilities contain approximately 270 pieces of artwork from the collections of EMMA – Espoo Museum of Modern Art.
- Ecological solutions. Convertible spaces, solar thermal collectors and a heat recovery system support sustainable development.
“At home at 100”: The new Espoo hospital also celebrates the centennial of Finland’s independence.
