Korso health center back to normal on Nov. 12, 2018

Korso health center's urgent care will transfer from Koivukylä health center back to Korso health center on November 12, 2018. There will be no more reason for transfer of urgent care, since Apotti implementation training has been completed. As of November 12, 2018, Korso residents requiring urgent care can contact their own health center as usual.

Since September 17, 2018, patients needing urgent care have been treated at Koivukylä health center. According to the original plan, Korso residents’ urgent care was meant to take place at Koivukylä health center from September 17, 2018, to January 31, 2019.

The reason for the transfer of care was ensuring availability of care as the health centers’ operations were being reformed.
