Herttoniemi Hospital houses operations of HUS Helsinki University Hospital and the City of Helsinki.  

Hand surgery and upper limb orthopedic services have been centralized in our hospital. Our hospital does not have any inpatient ward, and all our patients are able to leave and recover at home after surgery.

Laboratory tests and X-ray examinations are carried out prior to arriving for the appointment at the outpatient clinic or for a surgical procedure. There is no laboratory or imaging unit in our hospital. You can find a suitable unit here: Laboratory and imaging locations

We also serve as a temporary relocation facility for the City of Helsinki. Starting at the beginning of 2019, Myllypuro comprehensive service centre has also been located on our premises.
