Addresses for the health care centers.                        

The health care centers offer a free health care service to all children at the age 0-6 years and their family. The health care centers aim to support the parents in their care for the children.

The purpose of the health care center is:

  • to sustain and further the physical, psychic and social health and well being of children 
  • to prevent and remedy inherited and acquired illnesses

Nurses, doctors, physiotherapists and psychologists work in the health care centers and they offer:

  • Consultation for newly born and small children
  • Home visits 
  • Vaccination
  • Parents guidance
  • Health information
  • Guidance for families with special needs
  • Preparatory couses for parents-to-be 

When a child is born, a message is sent from the maternity ward at the hospital to the health care center. The center will then, in turn, contact the parents to schedule a home visit.
