Demanding Medical Care
Jämsä is part of the Pirkanmaa Health District, which means that the more demanding medical care for the residents of Jämsä is offered in the Tampere University Hospital (TAYS).
The control for specialized health care is organized either in Jämsä's Jokilaakso Hospital or in TAYS. Before having a referral to more demanding treatment, the residents of Jämsä or Kuhmoinen can negotiate with their doctor and choose between the Tampere University Hospital and the Central Hospital of Central Finland (in Jyväskylä).
However, childbirths and screenings during childbearing are organized in the Central Hospital of Central Finland, except for risk groups. The nurses and the doctors of the maternity clinic help the mothers to choose the right place for their childbirth.
