Hospital chief with bogus ID is suspended

Health Minister Makis Voridis on Wednesday ordered the immediate suspension of the director of a public hospital in western Macedonia, northern Greece, amid suspicions that he secured the post with a fake diploma.

In the latest case of doctors and hospital directors accused of gaining their positions with bogus qualifications, the doctor in western Macedonia was dismissed after health authorities determined that both his degree certificate and other professional diploma bore his name but a different place and date of birth from those on his birth certificate.

The case came to light just a few months after the dismissal of a deputy director of an Athens hospital and the director of a hospital on the island of Skyros, in the Sporades, after their degrees were found to be fake. The Skyros doctor, who was recruited in 2000 on the basis of a forged degree from an Italian university, is alleged to have owned a Ferrari and a private jet.

The government launched a re-examination of the degree certificates of the directors and doctors at the countrys public hospitals at the end of last year in a bid to weed out impostors.
