Free-of-Charge Medical Tests for the Residents of Leros. “Traveling for Health 2016” Initiative

04 July 2016

The 6th action of the “Traveling for Health” initiative will take place on the island of Leros, forming part of HYGEIA Group’s extensive Corporate Social Responsibility program. A group of volunteers will offer free-of-charge medical services to the residents of the island on Friday 8 & Saturday 9 July, at the Alinta Primary School.


The team of volunteers is made up of 39 physicians with 16 specialties, as well as another 70 volunteers, including nursing, technical and administrative staff from various HYGEIA Group companies. The medical specialties include: vascular surgery, anesthesiology, radiology, gynecology, dermatology, cardiology, neurology, orthopedics, urology, ophthalmology, internal medicine, pediatrics, pulmonology, general surgery, plastic surgery and ENT.

The diagnostic tests to be performed include blood tests, Pap tests, full body ultrasounds, ECGs, heart pulsed-wave Doppler and eye exams.

The “Traveling for Health” initiative commenced in 2013 with the aim of serving the needs of residents from small islands or mountainous regions who cannot easily access medical services. Backed by the top medical services and cutting-edge equipment of the Group medical facilities, the HYGEIA volunteers embark on trips to offer diagnostic tests, medical services and human care. Furthermore, HYGEIA Group offers support to the local medical centers by donating medical equipment, as well as pharmaceuticals and medical supplies.

A total of 5 volunteer campaigns (Leipsoi & Agathonisi, Karpenisi, Karpathos, Kalavryta, Kalampaka) have been completed so far, while more than 6,000 residents have been examined and some 24,000 medical and diagnostic tests have been performed.
