Emergency services for specialist medical care
The Jorvi Emergency Department serves residents of Espoo, Kauniainen and Kirkkonummi who are over 16 years of age. In urgent cases, we provide treatment regardless of a person’s domicile.
In cases of sudden illness or minor injuries, the local health center is the principal place of treatment. The health center emergency clinic in Jorvi is available on weekdays and weekends when your local health center is not open. You do not need a referral to seek treatment at the health center emergency clinic. For specialist medical care emergency services, you need a physician's referral, but in urgent cases, you may also seek treatment without a referral.
However, we always treat Espoo residents with fractures at the Emergency Department. If you suspect you have a fracture, first call your local health center or, if it is closed, call the Medical Helpline at 116 117.
Before coming to the emergency clinic, call the Medical Helpline at 116 117. In an emergency, always call 112.
If you already have a referral to the emergency clinic, you do not need to call the Medical Helpline.
The most common symptoms that you should always have looked at in an emergency clinic:
- chest pain
- stroke symptoms, such as sudden flaccidity or incapacity of a limb or speech difficulties
- profuse bleeding (e.g. vomiting of blood, large bleeding wound)
- major injuries and bone fractures
- sudden severe headache
- difficulty breathing
- suddenly occurring or increasingly severe abdominal pain
- mental health problems requiring urgent treatment
- fever in a newborn
- convulsive child
At the hospital emergency clinic, we always assess the need and urgency for treatment first. Based on this, you will be referred to a nurse or physician. Patients are treated in the order of urgency, not in the order of arrival. Because of this, a patient who has arrived after you may be admitted for treatment before you.
