Outdoor recreation and exercise

/ Treatment and patient ombudspersons / Outdoor recreation and exercise

Patients are entitled to at least one hour of outdoor recreation every day, health permitting. On the most secure wards outdoor activities take place on the ward’s secure courtyard under staff supervision.

The hospital has versatile indoor exercise facilities and equipment. The sports centre provides facilities for various team sports, and the well-equipped gym offers the opportunity to take care of one’s physical condition. During the summer, outdoor sports can be pursued on the hospital’s football pitch and tennis courts, and on the miniature golf course. The hospital’s exercise therapy is coordinated by an exercise instructor. The therapy includes the various forms of exercise and functional therapy enabled by the different seasons and the alternating terrain and rich waterways of Eastern Finland.
