Greece 2021 Committee donates 18 mobile ICUs to public hospitals


The ‘Greece 2021’ committee on the bicentennial of the declaration of the Greek War of Independence announced on Monday they would donate 18 intensive care unit beds to the National Healthcare System. 

The acquisition of the beds followed a tender for suppliers who are active in the field of ICU supplies and have proven experience and reputation in their field, the committee explained.

The donated ICUs are mobile and can be installed in containers or transferred to other hospitals in case of emergency.

President of the ‘Greece 2021’ Commitee, Angelopoulos-Daskalakis said the new ICUs will be delivered fully functioning, to immediately support the national health system and explained that the Committee will strive to use “every euro” of the money donated through their events and initiatives, for the common good.

Ministers of Health Vassilis Kikilias and Environment Costas Skrekas, have announced that the mobile ICU beds will be placed at Thessaloniki’s Papanikolaou Hospital.

In a video conference on Monday, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis noted that the end of the pandemic crisis was now in sight and pointed out that vaccinations in Greece will soon exceed the one-million mark.

While acknowledging that the health system -especially in Attica- is under pressure and people fatigued from the ongoing lockdown, he appeared confident that the situation is being handled well.
