Out-of-hours medical care
The East Savo Hospital District’s A&E department is located at Keskussairaalantie 6 in Savonlinna Central Hospital. For the location of the entrance, see the central hospital’s map. The A&E department is an outpatient clinic, and a fee is charged for each appointment. Patients under the age of 18 are treated free of charge.
