In the Paediatric and Adolescent Emergency Department, we look after the emergency care of those under 16 years of age round the clock.

Our emergency department is located at Tyks Lighthouse Hospital. Our goal is to provide a high level of quality in treatment as well as family-centred care and guidance in addressing childhood diseases.

We treat children's acute illnesses, patients requiring emergency assessment or treatment, and traumas affecting children, with the exception of high-energy injuries.

The peak infection season can cause occasional rush at the emergency department.

We belong to TYKS (Turku University Hospital) Department of Paediatrics and Adolescent Medicine.
