Raseborg Hospital’s 24-hour primary health care emergency department

Raseborg Hospital provides specialist medical care services for the population of Hanko, Ingå, and Raseborg. The hospital area has operations at Raseborg Hospital (somatics) and Tammiharju (psychiatry).

 Raseborg emergency services from 1 October 2020

From 1 October 2020, the new primary health care emergency department at Raseborg Hospital will only care for patients who have suddenly fallen ill or been injured and who require emergency care within 24 hours of the onset of illness or injury.

Such health problems include: 

  • Sudden swelling of a lower limb
  • Sudden fever
  • Unbearable back pain.
  • Injury caused by an accident that causes symptoms that you cannot cope with at home.
  • For example, bleeding, severe pain, or difficulty walking
  • Nosebleed that will not stop
  • Anxiety or depression which has suddenly become more severe

In other words, the need for emergency care is always assessed first by phone. You should no longer go directly to Raseborg Hospital for treatment assessment, because from 1 October 2020, they will no longer have the treatment capacity required for emergencies.

In future, accident and emergency patients within the Västra Nyland area who are in need of more acute and demanding specialist medical care will be treated at Lohja Hospital’s joint emergency service or on the basis of an assessment of care needs by other emergency services at HUS.

Before going to the emergency clinic, residents in the area should call the free Medical Helpline number 116 117. The Medical Helpline will refer you to the appropriate care provider or give you advice on self-care. However, in an emergency (such as severe chest pain, difficulty breathing, or symptoms of paralysis), always call the emergency number 112 directly.
