Rautavaara

Rautavaara Health Center offers doctor's services on weekdays and a nurse's practice for emergency cases. The nurse assesses the need and urgency for treatment, and also issues short sick leave certificates. Juankoski Health Center operates doctor's emergency services for patients needing urgent care Mon–Thu 4 p.m.–6 p.m., and weekends 8 a.m.–6 p.m. Emergency services are at Kuopio University Hospital 6 p.m.–8 a.m. every day.

Laboratory and X-ray

Patients need a referral from a physician or nurse for the examinations. If you have a Finnish Sickness Insurance (Kela/SII) card, this will speed up the process. Radiographic examinations are performed at Juankoski Health Center.

Dentist and dental hygienist services are available on weekdays at Rautavaara health center. The entire population of the municipality is entitled to dental care. Children under 7 and children in school are usually called in for a check-up every year. There are appointments available for patients needing emergency care on weekdays.
