The highest decision-making power in our hospital district is exercised by the Council, to which the 24 member municipalities of the Hospital District of Helsinki and Uusimaa and the University of Helsinki elect a total of 55 members. The members are elected for the municipal electoral period.

The council elects the executive board, which leads the hospital district, for its term of office.

The council has two annual statutory meetings, with the most important tasks being the approval of the budget and the work plans in the fall and the approval of the financial statements and the annual report in the summer. If necessary, the council may meet more frequently.
