The staff is very excited, [the equipment] has already helped their productivity tremendously, the clinical course of the final-year Medical Students has been considerably upgraded, while our research will get an additional boost thanks to this equipment.
It is noteworthy that the parents seem to have a greater sense of security thanks to the overall image of the facility in which their child is being treated.

On behalf of the staff and myself, I would like to thank you very much for always supporting our efforts in the interest of science.

Yours sincerely,

Stavrina Ilias

It is our great pleasure to inform you that we have offered a portable Ultrasound system to the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit of the General University Hospital of Heraklion-Crete, with funding provided by the Non-Profit Civil Company AEGEAS.


‘’The commendable Non-Profit Organization ‘’Pediatric Trauma Care’’ whose continuous contribution to the community has greatly helped our country in reducing the number and severity of children’s accidents, and helped to improve care once an accident has occurred. The donations of the Organization have brought significant improvements to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit of the University Hospital “PAGNI” in Irakleion, Crete.’’

It is with great pleasure that we would like to inform you that we have fully equiped the fourth Trauma Center in Greece, in the “University Hospital PAGNI” in Irakleion, Crete. The Trauma Center was funded by the companies Norton Rose Fulbright Greece, Hellenic Petroleum and an Anonymous Donor.


“What impresses me most about the Charity “Pedtrauma” is not only their fundraising abilities and the strict conditions and careful control, which accompanies the management of the funds which their sponsors have entrusted them with. It is not only the devotion and absolute dedication of the President and Members of the Board of Directors  in protecting the tender offspring of our society. It is – for me – the fact that they have managed to build a strong team to tackle Pediatric Trauma Care and Emergency : Sponsors – the Charity “Pedtrauma” – Medical and Nursing Staff . This team gains strength and enthusiasm from each other and together experiences the joy of giving. “Pedtrauma”, tries ( and succeeds admirably ) in extending large circles, and a safety net around Pediatric Trauma units and Hospitals. In one of these circles stands the Emergency Department of the University Hospital of Heraklion Crete, whose Pediatric Trauma Resuscitation Area has been fully equipped with all the necessary machinery by “Pedtrauma”.  I would like to express my gratitude to the tireless President and members of the Charity “Pedtrauma”  because their work reminds us daily that we are not alone in our difficult undertaking.”
