The Hospital District of Northern Savonia was founded in 1990 and it is a municipal association owned by 18 municipalities, in charge of coordinating the operations of the Kuopio University Hospital. The Kuopio University Hospital, KUH, is one of Finland's five university hospitals.
The basic pillars of the operations of the Northern Savo Hospital District are quality and efficiency. The most important task of the hospital is to provide patients with the best possible care, and this ambitious goal is achieved through profit management.
The Kuopio University Hospital evolves with determination. Providing the best health services requires investment in personnel skills, equipment purchases, and practices. The Kuopio University Hospital has over 30 specialties and employs a total of about 4,500 employees, so the best tools to support the development of operations are needed. For safety and risk management, the Hospital District of Northern Savonia relies on Granite's modern risk management services.
