When you arrive at the Hippocrateon Private Hospital, please proceed to the Patient Reception Desk which is located on the ground floor.

Make sure you arrive at the hospital at least half hour prior to your surgery in order to complete all the necessary documentation and be escorted to your room.

You will be asked to complete and sign the Patient Consent Form (based on data protection policy, EU General Regulation 2016/679) and then the Patient Admission Form.

Therefore, you are required to:

  • Present your identity card or passport.
  • Present the referal document from the doctor. 
  • Have copies of any medical information you may have, such as X-Rays, test results, documentation of diagnosis, your medication list, etc

Once the admission process is complete, your medical record will be handed over to the Ward Manager and you will be directed to your room to get settled. The Reception Desk and Ward Staff will do their best to provide you with the room of your choice, but unfortunately it is not always possible to guarantee the availability of that room on the day of your arrival.

In all cases, including emergencies, the patient is obliged to present his/her identity card.

Things to bring

There are several items you are recommended to have upon your admission to the hospital:

  • Personal hygiene items such as toothbrush, toothpaste, bath sponge, soap, hair shampoo, hairbrush, face and bath towel.
  • Underwear, pyjamas/nightgown, robe and slippers.
  • Glasses, contact lenses, hearing aids, dentures, etc. Be sure to keep them in their protective cases when not in use to protect against loss or damage. You may also bring a book and/or a laptop/tablet.

You should avoid bringing any valuable items or jewellery as the hospital bears no responsibility for their loss. However, all patients are given the opportunity to place their valuable belongings for storage in a safe location.
