PROJECT

Sädesairaala Clinic was built in 2013–2015 in the north-west section of the grounds of Puijo Hospital. The new building houses the radiotherapy unit, the oncology outpatient clinic, the infusion unit providing chemotherapy, and related reception areas, as well as autopsy facilities for pathology and the National Institute for Health and Welfare (THL) forensic medicine department. Additionally, the project includes the new Sädepark parking facility. Sädesairaala, which cost approximately 30 million euros, enhances cancer treatment and enables the centralisation of all autopsies performed by the Forensic Medicine department of the University of Eastern Finland in Kuopio. 

The equipment acquisitions that were part of the Sädesairaala construction project enable high quality care. Thanks to the preparation facilities, the use of the radiotherapy accelerator rooms is made more effective.

The project employed dozens of designers and experts in the various Sweco fields of operation all over Finland. Sweco was in charge of prime design, architectural design, information models and costs as well as electrical, telecommunication and security system design.
