Neurosurgical Inpatient Ward

Doctor looking at X-ray pictures of patient's skull.We treat patients undergoing brain or spine surgery and patients with brain damage. We admit patients from the emergency room, intensive care unit and the surgical outpatient clinic.

The treatment of brain damage patients is planned by neurologists and performed by the experienced staff of the ward. Patients in need of longer hospital treatment are often required to be transferred to other hospitals in the area after their condition has stabilised.

A daily inpatient fee is collected from inpatient ward treatment.

We have incorporated an internationally recognised multiprofessional co-operation in the treatment of brain damages from the very onset of the injury. Neurologists and neurosurgeons assess and plan the treatment together, with the support of other experts if required. Our aim is that the chain of care of the patient does not break and he/she will not be left without treatment and monitoring. This co-operation is still under development with other units of the hospital district.


We are located in the new facilities of the T-hospital in a 26 bed ward. Our comfortable patient rooms are for 1 to 3 persons and have a toilet and a shower in them.

There is a patient hoist in each room. There are separate facilities for a physiotherapist, and the ward pharmacist and the modern solutions of the medicine room add to the safe process of pharmaceutical therapy.
