We provide effective care for the best interest of the patient and provide a competitive working environment for the personnel, researchers, and students. Our goal is to expand specialist medical care services for children and adolescents both nationally and internationally. 

A family panel comprising of the children's parents as well as experts by experience bring the families' perspective to the development and operating methods of the hospital.

The department includes six divisions: Tertiary Pediatrics, General Pediatrics, Pediatric Surgery, Pediatric Neurology, Child Psychiatry, and Digital and Innovation Services. In addition, the department includes the Rare Diseases Center. In addition to the New Children's Hospital, we treat patients in other hospitals and clinics in the Uusimaa region.

In HUS, we also develop care through technological solutions as well as digital services and innovations. Digital services, such as Lastentalo.fi, complement traditional healthcare services and facilitate timely access to information. The New Children's Hospital uses real-time positioning technology and a system for providing guidance for use of services and managing the use of the facilities.
