Our most important value is that every baby has the right for the parents to be present to provide love and care. We pioneered family centred care in the NICU in Finland. Parents take care of their baby from the very beginning as much as possible.

In line with our service promise:

  • We are responsible for the demanding care of newborn babies born in the area of our university hospital.
  • We treat our patients with excellent professionalism, in line with the latest scientific research, constantly updating our competencies.
  • We monitor the quality of our care based on national and international benchmarks. Our outcomes are of the highest international standard.
  • We are improving the quality of care in many ways.
  • Our care is gentle and baby-friendly, even when intensive care is needed.
  • Building on the ‘Close Collaboration with Parents’ Program, we care for babies by listening to parents' wishes and supporting parenting.
  • We provide care in single-family rooms where both parents can stay overnight.
  • We train other hospitals in Finland and internationally, especially in neonatal respiratory care and family-centred intensive care.

The Breastmilk Centre receives and processes donated breastmilk and makes it available to newborns treated at the hospital.

We are part of the Tyks Department of Paediatrics and Adolescent Medicine. We work closely with the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology.

To improve and develop our work, we welcome feedback on care.
