The first clinic opened in the hospital 


The first department that operated in the Hospital


The Outpatient practices of the Department commenced their operations on the same day as the Papageorgiou General Hospital, i.e. on 16/8/1999. The Department was launched on 22/11/1999 and was the first department to admit and treat patients in the hospital. It should be noted that within one month from the commencement of its operations, on 1/1/2000, it started participating in the on-call duty program of pathology departments of the Prefecture of Thessaloniki.

Despite the limited number of special pathologists employed in the Department, they are capable of copying with the same challenges involved in the clinical and educational work as more populous pathology departments, university clinics or clinics of the National Health System.
