“Greece 2021" Committee donates 18 ICU beds

The “Greece 2021″ committee on Monday announced it will donate 18 intensive care unit (ICU) beds to Greece’s National Healthcare System.

The 18 beds offered are mobile, which means they can be installed in containers or transferred to the ICU of other hospitals in case of emergency.

The announcement was made during a teleconference which was attended by Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, Health Minister Vassilis Kikilias, President of the Greece 2021 committee Gianna Angelopoulos-Daskalaki, Governor of the 3rd Health District of Macedonia Panagiotis Bogiatzidis and the chief of Papanikolaou hospital Maria Giogatzi.

 

The units will be delivered with all the equipment and consumables required to operate so that they can continue to function after the end of the pandemic.

“The way out of the crisis is now visible, but how fast we will get there, depends on the careful steps we take in the final stretch,” the PM said.

The beds will be delivered to the General hospital of Thessaloniki “G. Papanikolaou”.

“We really feel deeply honoured today to talk to you and allow us to convey the wishes, thoughts and thanks of the approximately 2,000 hospital staff who strive daily to provide high quality services to each of our fellow human beings and to each patient who seeks our help,” said the chief of Papanikolaou hospital Maria Giogatzi.
