I've added a website page (to be finalised) re the University General Hospital Patras, Rio; if anyone's got anything to add / amend (even typos) please pop a reply. Link: http://goinggreek.info/pgnp.html

 :)

We all hope that we will not need this guide, but it could prove to be invaluable. Well done Maik.

I meant to say that I hope the page is a complete waste of time and of absolutely no use to anyone but...
yes, you never know. If you do have to go, well, it seems like a pretty good hospital
:)
I've added a hospital plan with a guide to location of Depts. / Units, some of the Google translations haved left me a bit  :wacko:

If anyone can figure out:

ΠΥΚΝΟΤΗΤΑ - Density
ΠΡΟΚΛΗΤΑ ΔΥΝΑΜΙΚΑ - Evoked Potentials
ΤΜΗΜΑ ΛΟΙΜΩΔΩΝ-ΜΑΓΝΗΤΙΚΟΣ - Department Of Infectious-Magnetic

... please let me know!

Amazing translation work!  Must copy into my greek lesson notes somewhere!  Some very tentative suggestions to your questions above:

Πυκνότητα - ? probably bone density, likely to be located next to/as part of X Ray

Πρόκλητα Δυναμικά - ?? ECG/EEG combined. 

Τμήμα Λοιμωδών-Μαγνητικός - ???

Your best chance with something specialist like this would be a friendly English speaking Greek medic or even a Greek with a bit of experience of hospitals.  I might try my Greek teacher.

You don't mention G.O.K on the map.  Used to be seen occasionally in patients' notes for more challenging diagnostic cases i.e."God Only Knows".  Even less common these days of litigation and patient access.  :)

Don't think any UK hospital would dare signpost the location of "laboratory animals", although all university hospitals will have them.  :(

Tried MS Bing Translator

ΠΡΟΚΛΗΤΑ ΔΥΝΑΜΙΚΑ became SURGICAL DYNAMICS - sounds more hospital-like but I'm still clueless as to what it is

Even more so with ΤΜΗΜΑ ΛΟΙΜΩΔΩΝ-ΜΑΓΝΗΤΙΚΟΣ - that translated as SUBPART LOIMWDWN-LEVEL

 :hmm:


Pity they don't have a School of Veterinary Medicine as there's quite a few mangy-looking dogs in the grounds, although they seem well enough fed by staff / visitors.

A little surprising... a pair of pigeons parading around the refectory (which is very modern and clean). One of the visitors was feeding them bread from the table. Probably get a greasy spoon closed down in the UK, never mind a hospital refectory!

Nevertheless, pretty impressed with the hospital  :btu:

I knew I'd seen evoked potentials somewhere and thought it was to do with EEG/ECG - but checked it out on Wikipedia - it's actually evoked potentials !  :lol:

Well done that man!  :btu:

I thought G.O.K. might mean Greeks Only Know!

Your hospital knowledge is greater than mine, Tony, but I think ΤΜΗΜΑ ΛΟΙΜΩΔΩΝ-ΜΑΓΝΗΤΙΚΟΣ / Infectious Magnetic might well have something to do with e.g.
Magnetic resonance imaging characterization of microbial infections

ΤΜΗΜΑ ΛΟΙΜΩΔΩΝ-ΜΑΓΝΗΤΙΚΟΣ is in the same block and on the same floor level as the Tomography unit, I think we'd call it MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) / MRT (Magnetic Resonance Tomography).

Magnetic Resonance Imaging / MRI Scan

GGi web page amended - we're getting there!

Hope this is of no use to anyone: haven't checked Ionian Group but Kefalonian Lines and KTEL have changed some of  the scheduled times for the Christmas period, may change again after New Year.

I've also added a small section to the Patras Hospital web page re eating out in Patras. Might be of interest even if you're only going for a bit of (Christmas) shopping.

KTEL Kefalonias bus station in Patras is now at the Panayiotis Kanellopoulos building, Ηρώων Πολυτεχνείου 42 (Iroon Polytechniou 42), telephone 2610 420 400.

Best place to catch the local bus to the hospital is probably still on Korinthou. From the bus station cross the 'square' and walk up Sarantaporou, across Konstantinoupoleos and up to Korinthou. On return journey try to alight near junction of Sarantaporou and Konstantinoupoleos.

Kef-Patras bus schedules available @ http://www.ktelkefalonias.gr/en




I quite liked the old bus station, reminded me of Greece thirty or so years ago.
