At the Mediterranean Hospital of Cyprus we are dedicated in providing affordable, high quality medical care. We strongly support Hippocrates’s belief that Prevention is better than cure’ and stress that prevention is key to dealing with today's chronic health problems.
Relying on expensive insurance plans or taking the latest miracle drugs will not solve problem of an increasing prevalence of chronic disease. We must approach the prevention of disease from the root causes, before it emerges.
According to a research conducted by the World Health Organization, in 2012, 56 million people died worldwide, 68% of which died from preventable diseases.
The four leading causes of death were cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes and chronic lung disease. Most of these causes of death are preventable and frequently detected at an early stage.
Therefore, it is recommended that everyone visit their doctor for a regular check-up to screen for early signs of preventable disease. Even if you are symptom-free, you may have early indicators of disease which show on physical examination or through laboratory testing. It is at this point that halting or reversing the progression of disease takes place.
The vision of our department is to place prevention and early detection as our first priority. Our approach is to assess the function of vital organs and find easily detectable early signs of disease. Today, we proudly announce the establishment of the first Preventive Medicine Department (PMD) in Cyprus.
These are some of the benefits you will find at Mediterranean Hospital:
Organized experience; a patient coordinator will be assisting you throughout the process.
Time-efficient process; no waiting lines, no time to waste.
Cost-effective; a check up tailored to one’s needs with no hidden costs.
Consultation from expert specialists as needed.
The PMD’s wish is to educate, promote and establish preventive medicine patterns as a key solution to health problems. We invite you for an initial consultation, free of charge, to discuss your needs and meet our staff.
