Jorvi Hospital operates a round-the-clock specialised medical care emergency clinic. This clinic admits patients with acute conditions, either based on a physician’s referral or, in emergencies, without a referral.
 
The clinic is divided, by speciality, into internal medicine, surgery and paediatrics clinics. Gynecology Emergency Department has moved to the Women’s Hospital March 6th, 2017.

Emergency cover is shared between the specialised medical care emergency clinic and the Emergency Ward, which has 12 beds (six monitoring beds and six beds for inpatient care). The ward treats adult patients requiring internal medicine and specialised surgical medical care monitoring, cardiac monitoring, observation and follow-up. 
 
Emergency care for children
 
Jorvi Hospital has a joint emergency clinic for children that has its own entrance on Turuntie.
 
Health centre emergency services
 
The health centre emergency services are open on weekdays outside office hours and on weekends. During office hours (8.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m.), patients from Espoo and Kauniainen should contact the emergency clinic at their local health centre. Patients from Kirkkonummi should contact the emergency clinic at their local health centre during weekdays and weekends at 8.00 a.m. to 8.00 p.m.
 
No referral is necessary for admission to emergency care of this kind. Although health centre emergency services share their premises and nursing staff with specialist medical care services, Espoo Social and Health Services are responsible for the related operations. The social and crisis emergency services of Espoo and Kauniainen also operate alongside the health centre emergency services.
