Your Admission

Scheduled Admission

Your attending physician will give you instructions regarding your scheduled admission. Once you arrive at HYGEIA, proceed to the Reception & Patient Services (Patient Admissions) on the 4th floor (ground level) to give your personal details as well as information about your insurance cover.

The staff at Patient Admissions will assist you in filling out all the necessary documents, will inform you about the admission process and, once your insurance cover details have been settled (provided you are insured), will escort you to your room so that you may settle in. The Patient Admissions staff will try their best to provide you with the type of room you desire (depending on availability). They will also hand you a Patient Handbook that contains useful information about your hospitalization, as well as the rights of hospitalized patients, in accordance with the Greek legislation.

Hygeia Card

On the day of your admission, you will be given the Hygeia Card, with your name and a strictly personal code number on it. The Hygeia Card works like an ID card, ensuring reliable identification. It offers multiple privileges and unique healthcare services to you and your family. In case you had been issued with a Hygeia Card during a previous admission/visit, please bring it with you.

Emergency or After-Hours Admission

In this case, proceed to the HYGEIA Outpatient Clinic, located on the 3rd floor (T: +30 210 686 7425). The Outpatient Clinic staff will inform you about the admission process and will help you fill out all the necessary documents. Cars may enter the Outpatient Clinic area only to pick up or drop off patients.

Preoperative check-up

Provided you have been scheduled for a surgical procedure, your attending physician will advise you when you need to undergo a preoperative check-up and will also notify Patient Admissions at HYGEIA (4th floor).
