The Lohja Hospital Emergency Department treats patients with sudden serious illnesses who need urgent care. When local health centres are closed, the clinic also admits patients whose treatment cannot be safely postponed to the next weekday.

The Lohja Hospital Emergency Department (24/7) and the Lohja Health Centre urgent care clinic (on weekdays 8.00–16.00) have operated under the same roof since 1 April 2017. The entrance to the Emergency department for all patients is through Door B.

Contact the emergency services in your local health centre during its opening hours. At other times, call the telephone helpline for urgent care: Medical Helpline 116117. The number is free to call and is available 24/7.

Registration and assessing the need for care

Take a number from the ticket machine and wait for your turn to register as a patient.

At the emergency room, the patient's need for care and urgency is first assessed, and the patient will be seen by a nurse or a doctor or placed in a treatment area for monitoring. If necessary, the patient is admitted to hospital. If the patient's condition does not require emergency care, the patient is advised to contact their own health centre.

Patients are seen in order of urgency. This is why the waiting times can vary regardless of the order of arrival.
