Hospitals in Estonia 2000-2018

Since 2000, the number of hospitals in Estonia has fallen significantly from 68 hospitals to only 30 in 2018. The number of hospitals dropped dramatically between 2012 to 2013, although there was a break in series at this point, so the source may have changed certain standards resulting in this value drop.

Healthcare workers in Estonia

Although the number of healthcare institutions in Estonia has decreased, the number of personnel working within them have remained stable. The number of physicians in Estonia in the period 2000 to 2016 has held steady, not changing by more than three hundred employees. In addition, the number of practicing nurses experienced more fluctuations over the time period, yet amounted to over eight thousand in 2016, which was an increase on the preceding three years.

Spending indicators on health

Estonia’s expenditure on healthcare was 6.7 percent of GDP in 2017, this share has generally been increasing since 2002. In comparison to other European countries, Estonia ranked rather low on the share of GDP spent on health expenditures. Switzerland had the highest share of expenditure on health, spending 12.2 percent of its GDP in this year.
