A $1 billion-plus SNF initiative organized around five main pillars

Carried out with exclusive support from SNF, the Foundation’s $1 billion-plus Global Health Initiative (GHI) seeks to strengthen physical and mental health by improving the quality of care for all, expanding access, and empowering providers on the front lines. The initiative is founded on collaboration: extensive public-private partnership in Greece and collaboration with international research institutions.

Our pillars of activity

In keeping with our commitment to open communication with the respective local communities throughout the construction of the new SNF General Hospital of Sparta, the SNF University Pediatric Hospital of Thessaloniki, and the new SNF General Hospital of Komotini, we are organizing yet another series of open discussions with representatives from SNF, the Ministry of Health, the Design Team, and the general contractor.

Setting the bar for future hospitals globally

In 2017, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) and Renzo Piano Building Workshop (RPBW) in collaboration with Betaplan embarked on a common vision to create and deliver to the Greek National Health System hospitals for the future. The SNF General Hospitals of Komotini and Sparta, and the SNF University Pediatric Hospital of Thessaloniki will be three, state-of-the-art public hospitals located in underserved healthcare peripheries of Greece providing equitable, universal and quality medical care for all. With completion and delivery of the new SNF General Hospital of Komotini and the SNF University Pediatric Hospital of Thessaloniki scheduled for the end of 2026 and of the new SNF General Hospital of Sparta for the end of 2027, the three hospitals envision to bring about a new standard in public healthcare in Greece and beyond.
