Moreover, the hospital has a range of fully equipped ambulances working 24 hours in order to be able to best respond to emergencies.
“Ygia” Polyclinic employs an open model of operation allowing licensed physicians that have undergone a screening process and have been approved as associate physicians to gain practicing privileges in our facilities. Currently, there are 242 physicians with those privileges. In addition, “Ygia” Polyclinic employs approximately 370 medical, nursing, administrative and support staff making us one of Cyprus’ largest employers.

Moreover, Ygia Polyclinic, after a long process, has concluded a five-year contract with the British Ministry of Defense to provide secondary health care to the population of the British Bases in Cyprus after the decision of the British Ministry of Defense to close its hospital in Akrotiri.
