HUS is Finland’s largest hospital district. On this website you will find information on HUS administration and decision-making, on our development projects, on our strategy, and on our responsibility principles.
HUS, formally the Hospital District of Helsinki and Uusimaa, is made up of five hospital areas: Helsinki University Hospital, Hyvinkää, Lohja, Porvoo, and Västra Nyland. HUS is the largest health care provider and the second-largest employer in Finland.
Some specialist medical care services are provided across hospital district boundaries, being based on the specific catchment areas of university hospitals. The Helsinki University Hospital Specific Catchment Area includes not only HUS itself but also the South Karelia, Kymenlaakso, and Päijät-Häme Hospital Districts.
We manage the most demanding specialist medical care in the country. We have nationwide responsibility to provide centralized care for many rare and severe diseases.
