2000-2010 Revolutionary 21st century
In 1999 the governing board of the hospital district received a document from expert dr. Jussi Huttunen, which presented two alternatives. Either the functional structure in Pikonlinna will remain the same, or the operations of Pikonlinna will be centered in the area of the central hospital., which would further the quality of patient care and enhance the effectiveness of operations. The report was related to an exhaustive survey concerning hospital care. The transfer of the department of pulmonology to the main building was considered particularly urgent.
…the Pikonlinna area and buildings have offered health care related services for several generations. Since the basic structure can be adapted for different purposes and the housing stock is healthy, continuous renovations are feasible.
