Health Min Kikilias Visits Ippokratio Hospital

ATHENS – Health Minister Vassilis Kikilias visited Athens' "Ippokratio" General Hospital early on Tuesday. "We will be on alert throughout the summer and the next project for us is the organisation of hospitals and health centres on the islands, so that we can receive the highest possible number of tourists that the situation with COVID-19 permits," he said.

Kikilias visited the hospital's ER, where he was briefed about the on-call services and talked with doctors, nurses and patients.

"The national health system earned points in society's eyes during the pandemic. It was built to serve everyone, without discriminating. A new era is dawning that involves lots of work and aims at its improvement, from the intensive care and enhanced care units to the hiring of staff, upgrading of the healthcare spaces and support of the National Health System, which is in the hearts of all Greeks," said Kikilias.

He also took the opportunity to once again thank the medical and nursing staff for their efforts.
