Setting Up an Intensive Care Unit

The Annousakeio Foundation of the Holy Metropolis of Kissamos and Selinos has been operating since 1976 and provides non-profit health and social care services through various frameworks in the areas of closed and open care. It is aimed at lone, economically and socially weak elderly people and people with disabilities, as well as people who are unable to support themselves and need special care.

Funded by the Latsis Foundation, the Intensive Care Unit of the Annousakeio Therapeutic Centre now consists of a renovated and fully-equipped double room as well as medical equipment such as defibrillator, upper and lower abdomen and heart ultrasound, cardiograph, permanent oxygen supply, infusion set and first aid kit.

The Unit will accommodate patients with craniocerebral injuries, strokes, victims of traffic accidents and people with pathological, cardiac and surgical problems that require continued monitoring and high levels of preparedness by medical staff, being at increased risk.

  • 45 patients are estimated to be served annually by the Intensive Care Unit.


“The John S. Latsis Public Benefit Foundation's donation is aimed at more efficient management of urgent medical needs. In particular, the operation of the Intensive Care Unit provides the necessary medical equipment for cases of patients requiring close medical supervision and specialised nursing care. It brings better results to patients' health, as it ensures a safe therapeutic environment and prevents deterioration of their condition, therefore protecting human life to the maximum possible extent.”

Rev. Antonios Aretakis, Director of Annousakeio Therapeutic Centre
