Rheumatic Diseases Inpatient Ward

We treat patients suffering from inflammatory rheumatic diseases and teach patients to treat their disease.

We admit patients from the rheumatology outpatient clinic and from the emergency room, from the emergency room and with a doctor's referral from other healthcare facilities.

A daily inpatient fee is collected from inpatient ward treatment.

Our ward is not operational during weekends.

Visiting hours

Mon to Fri: 1 pm to 7 pm

Expertise and competence

One of the main subjects of our scientific research is the imaging of rheumatic diseases (for example vasculitis, sarcoidosis, myositis) and infectious diseases with positron emission tomography (PET).

We are actively participating in the national registry of biological medications in Finland (ROB-FIN), which is aiming to follow the effectiveness and adverse effects of biological medications in the treatment of rheumatic diseases.

We are also participating in several research projects concerning the treatment strategies of rheumatoid arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis (FinEra, FIN-RACo, NEO-RACo and FinAdaSpa-trials). 

We are working in close co-operation with other specialities. For example we are regularly attending meetings of muscle diseases, lung fibrosis and dermatology.

People in charge:

Head physician Laura Pirilä, tel. 02 313 0000

Head nurse Raija Kuusisto, tel. 02 313 8415

We are a part of the Tyks operational division of Medicine.
