The main burden of medical services during the 2004 Olympic and Paralympic Games will be shouldered by the Olympic Village's Multiclinic with about 1,000 visits a day, according to an announcement by the Organizing Committee on Monday.
This was the result of a study of data obtained during the three previous Olympiads (Barcelona, Atlanta and Sydney), which were carried out at the medical services department of the Athens 2004 Organizing Committee.
The health sector will keep a considerable number of hospitals on constant duty during the Olympiad.
According to the strategic plan prepared in cooperation with the health ministry. Athens hospitals declared Olympic hospitals are the KAT (mainly for the treatment of athletes), Evangelismos (mainly for members of the Olympic Family), Georgios Gennimatas and the Nikaia general state hospital (both mainly for spectators).
Seven more general hospitals and seven special hospitals will also be on standby in Athens, where the main bulk of athletes, Olympic Family members and spectators will be concentrated during the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
