The Interbalkan Medical Centre in Thessaloniki has offered a 50-bed capacity ward to the health ministry for the treatment of non-COVID-19 patients. Of these beds, six are in ICUs.
The offer has immediate effect and was announced to the health ministry on Tuesday. It is estimated that in this way the national health system will be relieved from the treatment of roughly 450 patients on a monthly basis. The Interbalkan Medical Centre will also offer its modern infrastructure, experienced staff and its top doctors.
In an announcement, the Group said its top priority remains the safety of the patients, staff and doctors and for this reason it fully implements strict protocols and measures for admission and treatment, including a mandatory COVID-19 test for all patients and their escorts.
“The emergency situation in the city of Thessaloniki, makes it mandatory and imperative, beyond business interests and ideological prejudices, to rally all the forces of both the private and public health system to serve the public interest. We are and will be present, supporters and pioneers in any call made by Greek society,” stated Athens Medical Centre Group CEO, Dr Vassilis Apostolopoulos.
“Today that our country is being tested, our Group that for the last 36 years has always stood next to Greek society, has a duty to become part of the national planning of the Greek State,” said the vice president of the Group, Christos Apostolopoulos.
