The new buildings on the front yard

The most extensive construction project in Tays' history is underway on the front yard of Tays. Three new buildings and an underground parking hall will be constructed there. They will be finished in phases during 2018–2020.

Despite the construction works, the hospital's operations will continue without interruptions. In order to ensure smooth operations and a safe passage, we have resorted to different special arrangements.
