Social Face

IASO Group, showing in practice its awareness of the woman, the child and the whole family, set a new invoicing policy with reduced prices on obstetrics and surgery cases applying to all hospitalization beds, supporting in this way low- and middle-income citizens.

The price reduction did not alter the excellent quality of the provided services and contributed to the effort in keeping the Greek family strong to deal with this challenging situation, i.e. the recent economic crisis. IASO Group shall be a companion in this difficult journey and, to the extent possible, a provider of healthcare services, with a sense of duty and support for all those in need of the precious good of health. The combined effort of all staff and collaborators is focused on the management of the crisis that has damaged the medical industry, by keeping the central message of the Group “Eyes on the human” alive.

IASO Group, faithful to its values governing its operation, assists all sensitive social groups and especially in cases where young patients are in need of treatment, both inside and outside Greece. Based on its man-centered philosophy, IASO Group actively supports and participates in the efforts of resource-raising for the sensitive social groups. Financial support, medical and pharmaceutical or other supplies and financial contribution to events realized in institutions, associations, neighboring municipalities, sports clubs and NGOs are only a few of the actions materialized by our Group on an annual basis.

In terms of social policy and believing that the full cooperation between the public and the private sector will contribute to the resolution of major issues such as the shortage in ICU beds, IASO continues its collaboration with the Ministry of Health and Welfare for the hospitalization of neonates in the Neonatal ICU, at special prices covered by their insurance funds.
