    Appeal Denied - Thanks for the appeal, Agent. We took another look at the Portal in question and decided that it does not meet our criteria for removal at this time.

    Päivystys = Emergency duty hospital

    I've been taken there in an ambulance after getting a concussion in a match. Also gone there through this lane after my SO cut through the tendons in her finger.

    Waypoint sign which, by the way, is just one of the several area maps of hospital area. Zooming in...

    Päivystys = Emergency duty

    A bonus picture. Temporal corona testingtent on the yard of Malmi health clinic. Visited that as well.

    Please, remove the POI as it blocks emergency response unit and citizens rushing to get aid in severe and acute situations.

    Whoa @NianticGiffard , are you serious?! This is a textbook case of a POI that literally obstructs emergency routes to a hospital , you are breaking your own rules! Did you even read the original post?

    First, it is not at the hospital, but on a public street that the hospital shares with a school and several other medical clinics. Second, based on the existing street view, the object is next to a bus stop. Just because a Wayspot is on the same public street that ambulances use does not mean that it interferes with emergency vehicles. That specific criteria is about Wayspots that can block driveways, but not those on public streets.

    @TheFarix-PGO You are incorrect. Here we have a map from the National Land Survey of Finland from which you can observe that the POI is located on the premises of the hospital, the premise ID being .91-38-122-19 :
