YIT and HUS Kiinteistöt Oy have signed a contract for the implementation of the new eye hospital in Meilahti, Helsinki, Finland. The development phase, which has just been launched, will last until the end of 2020. The transfer to the implementation phase will require a separate order and it will be attached to the signed contract at a later stage. The project is due to be completed in 2023.

The new eye hospital will be constructed in the HUS Meilahti campus in Helsinki and it will be called Tammisairaala. In Tammisairaala, there will be 200 outpatient clinic rooms, 15 operating theatres, a 12-bed inpatient ward, an instruments and equipment maintenance centre and other support facilities as well as a parking hall for approximately 100 cars.
