Santorini Hospital With No Doctors

Hospital of SantoriniSince 2011, a brand new hospital is constructed on Santorini island but has not been put into operation yet, due to the Greek economic crisis and the lack of political will to solve the problem.
Santorini is one of the most famous & touristic islands in Greece, known for it’s beauty, voted several times as the most beautiful island in the world by travel magazines and organizations. 15,000 locals stay on the island all year around and aproximately 2 million tourists visit the island every season.
There are only basic healthcare services, provided by one public health center and one private (and very expensive) medical center. In case of emergency incidents, patients have to be flown with the municipality airplane to Athens or nearby Crete hospitals. Local people are deprived of any sufficient healthcare, women are forced to move to Athens in order to give birth, people are lacking fundamental security in their lives, because there is no hospital on the island.
The new hospital that remains closed is fully equipped with maternity rooms, operating rooms, emergency surgery rooms, exam labs and many more, fully ready to work.
petition has been created to have the hospital opened.
