Published: 25.3.2022 7.21

Espoo-based coronavirus patients may be referred to the Herttoniemi reserve hospital by the emergency department or a specialised medical care unit.

At the moment, Espoo Hospital has beds for 15 patients who need to be treated in isolation due to coronavirus. The number of coronavirus patients has remained high for several weeks. The use of the Herttoniemi reserve hospital helps us prepare for the rising numbers of coronavirus patients and eases the strain on Espoo Hospital.

Decisions to transfer patients will be made on a case-by-case basis depending on each patient’s situation and the capacity of hospitals.

Espoo is sending temporary staff to the Herttoniemi reserve hospital to help in the treatment of coronavirus patients.
