New Hygeia Hopsital Opens in Albania

Albanian Prime Minister Sali Berisha on Wednesday expressed his satisfaction with the largest private investment in Albania’s healthcare sector, speaking during the inauguration here of the 60-million-euro Hygeia Group hospital in the Albanian capital.
The new Hygeia hospital is part of the health group subsidiary of Athens-based MIG.  It first opened in June and initially offered 120 rooms, with a general and pediatric clinic, as well as a pre- and post-natal maternity ward.
“We appreciate your confidence in Albania, and by extension, the investment of 60 million euros by the Hygeia Group for an ultra-modern hospital of international standards, one that guarantees high-quality healthcare for its patients,” Berisha, a cardiologist by training, said during the inauguration.
On his part, MIG president Andreas Vgenopoulos thanked the Albanian Prime Minister and the Tirana government for their support of the major investment, while emphasising that Albania is an extremely investment-friendly country.
Moreover, he said the Hygeia Group now considers Albania as its “second home” and will back its investment in Tirana.
The medium-term plan is for 220 rooms and 12 surgical theatres, five maternity rooms and 16 ICUs.
The hospital also hosts Albania’s first two linear accelerators for cancer treatment, the first comprehensive oncology department in the country, a fully-equipped cardio-surgical unit and an invasive cardiovascular centre, amongst others.
With the Tirana hospital, officially called Hygeia Hospital Tirana, the Hygeia Group is present in four SE Europe countries.  It holds 10 private facilities in Greece, Turkey, Cyprus and Albania at present.
