In neurology, we provide emergency services in neurology, as well as neurological outpatient and inpatient care, and demanding neurological rehabilitation needed in the Helsinki University Hospital Area. For the rest of the HUS region, we are responsible for the demanding specialized medical care at a specialized level.
Our Neurology Emergency Clinic at Meilahti Tower Hospital is the only unit in HUS, where demanding treatment and diagnostics, including the thrombolytic therapy for cerebral infarction, can be implemented 24 hours a day throughout the year.
Approximately 80% of the patients on our neurological inpatient wards are admitted from the emergency clinic. The wards for demanding neurological rehabilitation admit patients directly from inpatient care.
