Athens Medical Centre and the Interbalkan Medical Centre in Thessaloniki, of the Athens Medical Group, were included in the list with preferred partner hospitals of the Diplomatic Council of the United Nations again in 2017.
Dr Vasilis Apostolopoulos, CEO of the group, commenting on the fact said that a renewal of this certification sealed an endless effort of the Group to offer quality and integrated health services according to the most strict international standards. At the same time it showed the group’s commitment to continue implementing a strategic plan for the development of medical tourism in Greece. This decision essentially awards the group’s effort to build a strong brand name for medical tourism in the country and offers a strong advantage towards international competition.
In αν announcement, Athens Medical Group said the distinction was based on the certifications ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 22000:2005 and the certification «Excellence in Medical Tourism» received by the group’s clinics by the Temos International Organization.
The ISO 9001:2015 certification covers the organization and management of hospital services, laboratory and diagnostics methods and healthcare in internal pathology, surgery, paediatric and maternity. The ISO 22000:2005 certification covers food services to patients and workers and logistics services.
