The hospital in Torsby is the county’s northernmost emergency hospital with round-the-clock operations. Clean and spacious premises house the emergency and outpatient clinics for all specialties. The hospital is centralized, streamlined and geared to the needs of the patient. Our work is based on the vision to “create a hospital where we can imagine ourselves as patients”.

The surgical activity covers both orthopedics and surgery, including endoscopic procedures. There is also dialysis department here.
Primary care is the basis for healthcare in Värmland, and we who work in general practice are there to give the residents of Värmland a close and good quality care during all stages of life in our local health care centers.
In addition to general practice, there are also opportunities to work in child health services, midwifery and adolescent health services, and to work with physiotherapists, occupational therapists and psychosocial resources, for example.
We work in teams that are often lead by a doctor at the local health care center. The patient gets to meet the most appropriate professional based on their medical needs.
We are committed to both individual and collective skills development for general practitioners.
