The Emergency Medical centre at Leptos Kamares Village saves human lives


The Kamares Emergency Medical Centre was opened during October 2007 and following six years of success, is continuing to offer an invaluable service to the residents of the Kamares Village and the nearby villages of Tala, Koili and Tremithousa.

The especially built fully equipped centre, allows all members to receive free emergency treatment in their own home or at the medical centre, which operates on a 24 hours 7 day a week basis.   Furthermore, exclusively trained staff belonging to the IASIS private hospital and are qualified in the GP field, are also available to offer their services five mornings a week for non-emergency consultations and minor surgery procedures.

The GP service is available to non-members.
This medical centre is mainly funded by the Leptos Group along with a small annual membership fee of €95 from their members. This particular fee covers the 24/7 of the centre’s recruitment and is a totally nonprofit making institution. Children under 12 years of age, are treated free of charge provided their parents are members of the scheme.

This unique and unprecedented facility has recently been extended to incorporate a fully equipped trauma room for emergency cases and this is due to a very generous donation made by a Kamares home family owner in gratitude for saving their child’s life in an unfortunate swimming pool incident.  A total of five human lives were saved due to the presence of the particular center in this region. 
The center gives peace of mind knowing that professional medical help is constantly on alert and available in emergency instances. It is an invaluable service which benefits the local communities and their members who are extremely pleased with this service.
