The North Estonia Medical Centre is a top hospital in Estonia, whose core values are dedication and professionalism, caring attitude and responsibility, and openness and cooperativeness. We are Estonia’s leading healthcare institution and a leader in innovation in the healthcare sector. The medical centre group employs almost 5,000 people – our team includes doctors, nurses, caregivers, and specialists. We have more than 500 doctors and, in addition to them, more than a hundred resident doctors constantly practice at the medical centre.
The medical centre consists of seven clinics with 32 specialist centres. Like European university hospitals, the medical centre provides treatment in all medical specialities except paediatrics and obstetrics. The medical centre has the largest cancer treatment, trauma, heart and psychiatric centre. In 2019, we provided assistance to 144,000 patients. The medical centre provides medical care of the highest level of medical complexity and, depending on the patient’s health problem, of simpler medical complexity to all insured persons, mainly from Tallinn and Harju County and from Central, Western, and Northern Estonia. Emergency care is provided to all those in need.
We want to offer every patient the best quality of treatment and the greatest satisfaction with the treatment service. As the first hospital in Estonia, we passed the preliminary audit of the Joint Commission International, which gave a good assessment of our activities so far and recommendations for the future. In order to continuously improve the quality of medical services, a patient council, treatment quality, and trauma committee has been formed in the medical centre.
