Tampere University Hospital Tays provides expertise in nearly all medical specialties. We treat patients in wards and outpatient clinics in our four hospitals, as well as in local hospitals and home hospital services throughout Pirkanmaa. A referral is needed to receive hospital care. 

There are four hospitals in the Tays system. Most of the patients of the Tampere University Hospital are treated at the Tays Central Hospital in Tampere. 

In addition to Tays Central Hospital, Tays includes: 

  • Tays Hatanpää in Tampere 
  • Tays Valkeakoski in Valkeakoski 
  • Tays Sastamala in Sastamala 

We also provide local hospital services in the inpatient wards operating in conjunction with Pirkanmaa’s social and health care centres and bring our expertise to your home through our home hospital services.  

Tays is a university hospital 

Tays' missions as a university hospital also include scientific research and development. This helps us find ways to provide the most effective treatment possible and thus support health and well-being.  

Our hospitals are teaching and research hospitals. We offer diverse continuing education to professionals in various fields working in social welfare and healthcare. 

Get to know our services

You can get a referral from the physician treating your treatment from a health and social services clinic, a private medical clinic, or occupational health care. Patients who have an accident or a sudden severe illness can be treated in the emergency department without a referral. Read more about urgent care and emergency department.  

After the hospitals in the capital region, Tays is Finland's most popular maternity hospital.
