In Vaasa Central Hospital the Pediatric Ward operates on two floors. On A8 (Keskola) we have the Newborn Intensive Care Unit, where we care for sick newborns as well as premature babies. On A9 we take care of 0-16 years old children, who come for research, surgery or have become sick suddenly for example an infectious disease. The Pediatric Ward in Pietarsaari is located on Pohjanlahdentie.

The Children´s Home Hospital carries out specialized medical care to children who can be at home instead of hospital. This will shorten the time the child is in the hospital.
