Travelling and Travelling Expenses
Both the central hospital and the psychiatric unit in Huutoniemi can be reached using the town’s bus routes. The Selkämeri Hospital is in Kristiinankaupunki.
Travelling expenses using public transport are compensated by the national health insurance.
By car or taxi
If you use your own car or a taxi due to poor bus connections, you can apply for compensation from KELA (Social Insurance Institution of Finland). Attach your letter of invitation or outpatient card and a receipt in your application to KELA (www.kela.fi)>>. If your condition requires a special vehicle (your own car or taxi), we will write a travel certificate on request.
There are over 1 200 free parking spaces in the hospital area. You find most of the parking spaces and the multi-storey car park behind the hospital (the driveway is next to the swimming hall). They do not have a time limit (map of the hospital area). Temporary parking spaces (3 hours) are found in the front of the hospital. In Huutoniemi, parking spaces are found around the area (map of Huutoniemi).
