‘Here at the Venizelio & Pananio General Hospital, over 20 million euro from EU funds helped complete the existing infrastructure in order to meet the region’s needs for healthcare service. Once again I am glad to see that our Policy played an important part in improving the quality of the people’s everyday life in Crete.

The European Regional Development Fund has also financed the supply of the medical equipment for the intensive care unit as well as a CT scanner.

It is definitely one of our Cohesion Policy success stories!’, declared the European Commissioner for Regional Policy, Corina Cretu.
