A Dutch national has donated two medical ultrasound scanner units to the cardiology clinic of the General Hospital “Agia Eirini” on the island of Corfu, one year after his hospitalization there in 2018, the hospital announced on Thursday.
The two scanners are the first part of a donation total worth 100,000 euros. The Dutch citizens wanted to thank the hospital for his treatment there. According to local media, the donor wanted to keep his anonymity.
A third ultrasound scanner was donated to the hospital’s Kidney Clinic by the Port Authority of Corfu (OLKE).
“The donations were made by two different bodies and people. They are very important because they renews the infrastructure of the General Hospital of Corfu with equipment we did not have,” said Corfu Hospital Director Fivos Kakavitsas during an equipment reception event.
“I am very happy, as the project we started a year and a half ago – with the donation of a kidney unit, blood pressure monitors and other equipment needed to support the General Hospital of Corfu – continues today with the ultrasound scanner, which is the penultimate donation on behalf of OLKE,” said Spyros Stefanidis, chairman of OLKE.
Several regional officials, including doctors, local government officials and lawmakers attended the donations receiving ceremony.
