We hospital chaplains are there for patients, their relatives and the personnel.

We are specialists in pastoral counselling but you can discuss any area of human life with us, not just spiritual issues. We observe the obligation to secrecy specified in law, and we respect different faiths and convictions and freedom of religion. We were invited and commissioned by and receive support from the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland.

Evenings, weekends and holidays you reach us via Vaasa central hospital switch 06 213 1111.

The Quiet Room is open daily.
