Evangelismos Hospital (EGH) is currently the largest Hospital in Athens-Greece, expanding to all specialties with both clinical and academic activities that cover the whole spectrum of hospital based medicine. The Department of Endocrinology and Diabetes of EGH, that intends to participate in the project, represents the major clinical and teaching Endocrine department in the country. It receives numerous referrals of common and rare endocrine disorders, including those most relevant for the project such as patients with Cushing’s syndrome and pituitary tumours.
Its infrastructure includes 15 beds devoted to intensive endocrine investigation and/or treatment of endocrine patients. These are well supported by a dynamic endocrine test unit and a laboratory with special interest and expertise for all hormone measurements. The department receives a large patient load from the very busy outpatient clinic and referrals from all over the country, due to its expertise in adrenal, thyroid, pituitary disorders and type-1 diabetes.
