Greek Health Min Visits Samos Hospital

SAMOS, Greece — Health Minister Vassilis Kikilias on Thursday expressed his satisfaction with the operation of the hospital on the island of Samos.

As he said, from the start of the year the hospital has hired 28 doctors, nurses and other staff while the surgery clinic will undergo restoration, and maintenance work will be done on the Emergency Unit in the coming days.

Kikilias also said that four paramedics and ambulance crews will be added in the coming days as part of the plan for the summer period.

Regarding the pandemic, he said that the hospital did not treat any cases and noted that a container for screening suspected or potential COVID-19 cases at intake has been installed in the hospital's yard. The hospital has six ICU beds, three of which are for COVID-19 cases.

After meeting with the hospital's board, Kikilias stated: "[Islands] are very important for us as a country. In the difficult times we may encounter, we must support our islands, especially the remote island of Samos, and this is why I am here today."
