The county council’s healthcare operations is operated out of six centers of which four focus on specialized care and operate out of the Östersund hospital: the center for specialized surgery, the center for specialized medicine, the center for paediatrics, women and psychiatry and the center for medical diagnostics, technology and services. The center for primary care provides care at local healthcare centres and district nurse centers.
From 2010, there is a nationwide health choice system in Swedenthat reinforces citizens’ rights to be able to choose their healthcare centers - in Jämtland this is known as Health Choice Jämtland. This law means that healthcare centers may be run by independent healthcare service providers who fulfil the demands and requirements as stipulated by the county council. At present, healthcare is provided at around 30 local healthcare centers and at some district nurse centers. Most of these are operated by the county council but some are run as private clinics and can be found in places like Offerdal, Hammerdal, Hede, Hoting and Strömsund.
