New Children's Hospital



A new children’s hospital will open its doors on the Meilahti campus in Helsinki in autumn 2018. The New Children’s Hospital will be the leading provider of specialized health care for pediatric patients in Finland. The hospital will also act as the main provider of specialized health care for children living in the Helsinki region.
 
The New Children’s Hospital, which is also a part of Helsinki University Hospital (HUH), treats all pediatric illnesses. In Finland, the treatment of several demanding pediatric illnesses, especially cardiac surgery and organ transplantations, are centralized to the New Children's Hospital.

The hospital treats patients from new-borns to 15-year-olds, and some patients continue in our care beyond the age of 15. Our smallest patients are preterm babies weighing less than 500 g at birth. Patients come to us from all over the country, and also from abroad.

Excellent treatment results, expert staff, diverse research, and new top-of-the-line facilities make the New Children's Hospital a world-class hospital.

The New Children's Hospital is systematically managed and developed. All activities are based on medical research. The efficiency and cost-effectiveness of our practices, and the patient experience are considered in all activities.

Our goals are to expand the specialized health care services for children and adolescents both nationally and internationally, to deliver effective care in the best interest of the patient, and to offer our staff, researchers, and students an attractive work place.
