Laboratory services and X-ray

Patients need a referral from a physician or nurse for the laboratory examinations. If you have a Finnish Sickness Insurance (Kela/SII) card, this will speed up the process. Laboratory is open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays 7.30 a.m.–9.45 a.m.

Radiographic examinations have been centralised at Pielavesi and Keitele health centers. Patients need an appointment for radiographic examinations. For an ultrasound examination, an appointment can be booked directly with the X-ray unit. The X-ray services at Pielavesi also perform ultrasound examinations and orthopantomographies.

Oral health care

You need an appointment to see a dentist or a dental hygienist. Customers can book an appointment for any of the oral health care practices in the Nilakka service unit (Keitele, Pielavesi, Tervo, Vesanto) via the centralised appointment booking service. During office hours, emergency services are provided at the health centers. During weekends, emergency services are offered at Kuopio.
