Currently one of the largest private hospitals in Greece, Hygeia Hospital is the first major private hospital that has operated in Greece since 1974.
Founded in 1970 with the aim to create a model hospital in Greece, Hygeia Hospital has gradually alleviated the shortcomings of the Greek National Health System and throughout its 30-plus years of operation continues to lead the way. The main objective is to provide high quality services and develop an integrated network of health services in Greece and abroad.
Hygeia was the first hospital in Greece to undertake a heart transplant operation, the first to treat an HIV patient, and the first throughout Europe to carry out implantation of radioactive particles in prostate cancer. In addition, the successful separation of Siamese twins in May 1989 provided two people with an independent personal life.
Hygeia Hospital provides a unique gamma-KNIFE brain radio surgery department in Greece, with Leksell Gamma Knife® PerfexionTM, a fully equipped radiation oncology centre, a state-of-the-art intensive care unit and an intermediate care unit, one of the most modern organ transplant units, a day surgery unit, the largest department of interventional neuroradiology and cerebral aneurysm embolization.
Hygeia Hospital's primary goal remains the provision of high quality services at the cutting edge of medical science and technology, as well as the development of an integrated network of Health Services both in Greece and abroad.
