Support for the Renovation of the 2nd Intensive Care Unit and Emergency Department at Evangelismos Athens General Hospital
The SNF Health Initiative’s grant for the renovation of the 2nd Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and Emergency Department at Evangelismos Hospital aims to provide renovated spaces for 18 ICU beds, in addition to the spaces already delivered for 34 ICU beds under the SNF’s Global Relief Initiative for the COVID-19 Pandemic.
The grant is undertaken in collaboration with the Athanasios and Marina Martinou Foundation and Mrs. Aliki Perroti.
The Construction Design study for the renovation of the 2nd ICU has been completed, incorporating the views of end users at Evangelismos that helped to optimize design elements and account for new modalities and best practices which emerged from the pandemic. The works on-site have been on hold due to Evaggelismos’s critical role as a COVID-19 referral hospital and are now expected to start imminently. At the recommendation of the hospital, priority is being given to the renovation of the ICU, which will push renovations to the hospital’s Emergency Department back to a second stage of the project.
