History of the hospital

  • Latvian Oncology Centre
  • Biķernieki
  • Linezers

RIGA EAST UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL was created by joining several medical institutions which used to operate independently of each other.

By following the guidelines of the State Health Care Structural Plan, on 1 August 2005 the SJSC “Rīgas Austrumu slmnīca” (Riga East Hospital) was founded by joining three independent hospitals – “Biķernieki”, “Latvian Oncology Centre” and “Linezers”.

On 3 September 2007, the Centre of Diagnostics and Pathology joined Riga East Hospital. The name of the hospital itself changed as well – LLC “Rīgas Austrumu klīniskā universitāte” (Riga East Clinical University).

In spring 2008, a decision was taken on the restructuring of “Gaiļezers” Clinical University Hospital and Riga East Clinical University Hospital through merger.

On 1 April 2012, according to the decision of the Cabinet of Ministers, RIGA EAST UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL took over the functions related to the treatment of infectious diseases, and the Latvian Centre of Infectious Diseases and the Centre of Tuberculosis and Lung Diseases started operating as a part of the hospital.
