Who we are

Heart Hospital Tampere University Hospital located in Tampere, Finland, is a modern multi-disciplinary team organization built around patient care. We provide a seamless, high-value care environment for patients requiring advanced evaluation and treatment. We utilize modern technology in cardiology as well as in cardiac and thoracic surgery - including remote magnetic navigation in treatment of cardiac arrhythmias as well as video-assisted endoscopies and robotic surgeries. We also serve patients coming from outside of Finland. Heart Hospital operates in connection with Tampere University Hospital.
