The Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) and the Greek Government have signed an agreement protocol towards an initiative aimed at supporting the Health sector in Greece. This involves various projects, among which stand out, due to their relevance, the plans to build a Children's University Hospital in Thessaloniki and the Komotini and Sparti Hospitals.


All three projects have in common both an approach which is centred on people and a steady attention towards the natural environment within which they become integrated, thanks to a careful utilization of renewable energy resources and of the principles of energetic and social sustainability. The employment of light and of natural ventilation find their application as mainstream principles both in public spaces and in the patients' rooms. The basic idea in the three projects is, to give shape to facilities, which are totally immersed in nature, in order to foster a quiet, relaxing environment for patients and their relatives, but also for doctors, nurses and all staff. Nature has in fact a "therapeutic" role in every patient's rehabilitation process, as in the ancient Asklepeion.
