Komotini to get hospital designed by Renzo Piano

Preparations are under way for a new general hospital in Komotini, northern Greece, which will be built as part of a 200-million-euro investment program launched by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation to bolster Greece’s ailing public healthcare system.

The hospital is being designed by award-winning Italian architect Renzo Piano, the creative force behind the foundation’s cultural park in southern Athens.

The designs and a mock-up were presented at the Health Ministry Thursday by representatives of Piano’s firm and of the American Johns Hopkins Hospital, which has an advisory role in the project.

The studies for the infrastructure work that needs to be carried out around the site of the new hospital will be funded by a local association of civil engineers to the tune of 162,000 euros and carried out by the municipal authority.
