Traveling for Health, Argos Orestikou

HYGEIA Group traveled to Argos Orestiko in the context of its Traveling for Health Corporate Social Responsibility initiative. A team of volunteers offered free-of-charge healthcare services to the locals on Friday 3 and Saturday 4 November.

More than 4,000 exams were performed on around 1,100 residents by volunteers from the HYGEIA Group companies. The team was made up of 31 physicians with 16 specialties, as well as another 40 volunteers, including nursing, technical and administrative staff from various HYGEIA Group companies. The medical specialties were vascular surgery, anesthesiology, radiology, gynecology, dermatology, cardiology, neurology, orthopedics, urology, ophthalmology, internal medicine, pediatrics, pulmonology, general surgery, breast surgery, plastic surgery and ENT. The diagnostic tests performed included blood tests, Pap tests, full body and vascular ultrasounds, cardiograms, heart pulsed-wave Doppler tests and eye exams.

Two very serious cases were also treated and were immediately transferred to Kastoria Hospital by a HYGEIA Group ambulance for further hospitalization.

The Traveling for Health initiative was designed with the aim of meeting the needs of residents on remote small islands or mountainous regions who do not enjoy easy access to medical services. Backed by the top medical services and cutting-edge technology of the Group medical facilities, the HYGEIA Group volunteers embark on trips to offer diagnostic tests, medical services and human care.

Many volunteer campaigns (Leipsoi & Agathonisi, Karpenisi, Karpathos, Kalavryta, Kalampaka, Leros, Tilos & Nisyros) have been completed so far, while more than 8,700 residents have been examined and some 34,100 medical and diagnostic tests have been performed.
