Digital Townhall Meetings for New Hospitals in Komotini, Thessaloniki and Sparti

December 10, 2020

In the next few years, Komotini, Sparta, and Thessaloniki will all gain new hospitals, thanks to an exclusive grant from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) that aims to improve the lives of local communities and ensure access to high-quality health services. The new SNF General Hospital of Komotini, the SNF University Pediatric Hospital of Thessaloniki, and the new SNF General Hospital of Sparta aspire to become models of public health care and treatment for the residents—children and adults—of these regions. 

SNF invites the public to open online events to discuss the vision, design philosophy, and progress of the projects, as well as to answer questions from members of the public.

The presentations, which will take place in Greek, will include SNF representatives, members of the architectural firms involved, as well as medical consultants for the project.

The grant for the construction and outfitting of these three state-of-the-art hospitals is part of SNF’s Health Initiative, whose budget exceeds $400 million. The Initiative, which also includes procurement of specialized medical equipment and support for educational programs, aims to strengthen the health sector in Greece to improve access to quality medical care.

Mission…to Alonnisos, a TNH Documentary

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
