DESCRIPTION OF PARTNER
Länsi-Pohja’s central hospital is situated along the shores of Kemi in the center of town. The hospital provides specialized somatic medical treatment services to the region’s population. Keroputaa Hospital, in Tornio, is a psychiatric hospital.
Proximity to the people is our strength.
With about 70,000 inhabitants, Länsi-Pohja is Finland’s second smallest healthcare district. Being small is also an advantage. Over 90 % of the area’s population lives within a half-hour drive of our hospital. This means that our specialized medical treatment services are very close to the people.
Just around the corner
Our goal is to promote the well-being of the people in the district by providing high-quality, focused treatment with respect for the patient. We constantly develop our expertise and our services, so that we can continue to provide modern, expert treatment in the future. From early 80′s the Hospital was involved in pioneer implementation of ODA in Finland.
