AHEPA University Hospital Cyprus will have 200 beds, 100 examination rooms; 10 operating theatres; an accident and emergency department; a rehabilitation department; and specialised facilities and laboratories for cardiology, colonoscopy, endoscopy, gastroscopy, radiology and urology.
The building will cover an area of approximately 18,000m2, the project is expected to cost approximately €80 million in total.
Construction of the facility is expected to begin in January 2024, with a planned completion date in the first half of 2025.
It is hoped that the hospital will improve Cyprus’ outlook as a potential destination for medical tourism, and as a producer of medical research.
“It will be Cyprus’ first fully accredited hospital, and will implement the strictest protocols and a documented operating system, ensuring the highest level of services and the capability to conduct clinical research,” said Savvas Tsivicos, the President of AHEPA.
