SARAFIANOS General Clinic S.A. completed half a century of continuous operation and responsible offering of services in the sector of Hospital Care in the town of Thessaloniki.
It was established by late Dr. Lysimachos Sarafianos in 1956. The construction of today’s multi-storey building at 28 Ioustinianou Str. was completed in 1972, providing Thessaloniki with the most modern, compliant with European standards, private clinic of the town, comprising 202 beds, expanding in 3 adjacent buildings, and owning hospital equipment which was unparalleled at the time, central air-conditioning, fully equipped rooms, and operating rooms with medical equipment which had never before been used in Thessaloniki.
Ever since the first day of its operation, it has tried and managed, as it does today as well, to be joined by great Greek scientists, who using the freedom involved in practicing their trade as self-employed persons, were able to bring new, innovating ideas to the sector of hospital care and health services in general as well as new practices and breakthroughs only existing in developed countries.
The founder’s vision and goal was to offer care services to patients “in a compassionate way”, in a place with high-level Medical Know-how.
Showing sensitivity and respect towards the needs of each patient, an environment of trust, understanding and willingness has been shaped.
It takes the leap ahead.
Holding on to the experience, knowledge, wisdom and prestige of a long tradition, and combining vigor, urge, imagination and effectiveness of its new Management Team, we turn the page and aim at offering high-level health care services, adapting to the new standards of Hospital Care in our town.
The basic components of our operation over the last years, based on high demands in the sector of medical care, have been:
- Overall modernization with new, high-tech medical equipment
