Health care

As the Chief Physician at Munkkiniemi Health Center, I have the privilege to see the wonderful staff doing their best every day to meet the increasing needs of the citizens. We, the decision-makers, have to find resources to help them in their ambitions. 

The mental health problems among the young have to be addressed seriously. Around 15% of the children and 20-30% of young people suffer from decreased mental health. The prevalence of symptoms of anxiety and depression still seems to increase.

During the election period 2021- 2025, particular focus and enough resources need to be secured to support families with children and young people’s mental health. In addition, we need to be able to guarantee ethically sustainable services for the elderly.

Front row corona crisis management

On March 20th, 2020, at 7 am, I was standing with a dozen other voluntary physicians and nurses in a gloomy auditorium in the newly opened Corona Health Center in the Laakso Hospital area. Nobody knew what level of risk the staff would be exposed to or if there would be enough safety equipment and beds.

This episode is about my background in outpatient medical care in Helsinki. It culminates in the first-hand insights into the city’s corona crisis management I have acquired through my capacity as chief physician at Laakso Corona Health Center. The 35 health care professionals at Laakso have taken care of over 27 000 patients in a year, and I will remain proud of my team and its effort forever.
