The announcement of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation
“The Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) announces that “the tender for the construction of the new SNF Komotini General Hospital, the SNF Thessaloniki University Pediatric Hospital, and the new SNF Sparta General Hospital, under the international Health Initiative, was essentially fruitless and therefore it is cancelled. All bids submitted on Thursday February 9, 2023 were far higher than the financial object of the donation (in some cases more than double) even taking into account recent international developments (war, inflation, supply chain disruption, etc.) .t.l.).
This development, for now, makes the completion of said projects for the three new Hospitals at the quality level envisioned by the SNF and deserved in Greece impossible. However, the Foundation is considering all possibilities and possible alternatives, and will come back with an update soon.
All other actions of the international Health Initiative, both in Greece and internationally, continue as normal and are carried out within schedules and budgets.”
