Riga 1st hospital
Riga 1st hospital is the oldest hospital in Latvia. Founded in 1803 under the personal edict of the emperor Alexander I, for two hundred years it has been acknowledged as a top-priority inpatient emergency and immediate care institution. In 2011 at the initiative of the Riga City council another renewal of the hospital was started. Only in the last five years more than 30 million EUR have been invested in the renovation project, which combines the present-day appearance of historical buildings with the newest concepts of their maintenance.
Nowadays the hospital provides a wide range of outpatient and planned inpatient services (including the services of the day-and-night inpatient facility), with the use of the most up-to-date medical equipment and the newest methods and technologies, which ensure comprehensive diagnostics and medical treatment capabilities and allow to identify the signs of disease in due time and to preserve health for many years.
