The executives who will be selected will have increased qualifications and abilities. We signal the change of mentality in the public administration, the relationship of respect that we want to strengthen with the citizens, so that they can enjoy better services. Our first priority is health, which is why the first notices issued pursuant to the law concern the sensitive area of ​​health.”

The Minister of Health, Michalis Chrysochoidis stated: “The Health Regions are the highest level of administration of the National Health System. Administrators undertake to carry out a mission, with increased tasks, which require increased qualifications that combine knowledge and experience, both in the field of administration and in the field of health. We need competent commanders, selected with objective criteria, based on their qualifications, as defined in the respective provisions, who will share our vision for the reconstitution of the NSS. Starting with the Commanders and Deputy Commanders of the 7 Ministry of Health, we are paving the way for the matching of qualifications and abilities. The Hospital Administrations will follow, in the same pattern. Our goal is the meritocratic staffing of the administrative hierarchy of the Health Regions and Hospitals, so that the response to the tasks and the predetermined goals is a common place, in order for the Directorates of the Health and Human Services to function as a model for the Administrations of the Hospitals”.
