Inauguration of Surgical Equipment at KAT General Hospital of Attica
31 January 2019

On Thursday January 31st, the KAT General Hospital of Attica held an inaugurational ceremony for new specialized surgical equipment donated by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) to the Hospital’s Hand, Upper Extremity, and Microsurgery Clinic.

Τhe event was attended by SNF representatives.

The Hand Clinic was established in October 1986 as an independent unit with a focus on upper extremity surgery, and it handles a large number of surgical referrals from hospitals across Greece on a 24-hour basis. The new surgical equipment is expected to significantly improve the work carried out by the Clinic’s doctors, enabling them to perform surgical procedures with greater accuracy.

This donation follows previous SNF support to the KAT General Hospital of Attica for the purchase and installation of a CT scanner to more accurately diagnose diseases and injuries.
