Evros - Hospitals - Health Centers
In Alexandroupolis operates one of the university hospitals of Greece, under the auspices of the Democritus University of Thrace. The University Hospital of Alexandroupolis, located on the outskirts of the city, at a distance of six kilometers from the center, "is a decentralized and independent organizational unit of the Regional Health System (Pe.S.Y.) of East Macedonia and Thrace", as it is referred to at the official website www.pgna.gr. The overall capacity of the hospital is 671 beds, and access is easy, as there is frequent bus service.
A General Hospital operates also in the center of Didymoteicho. It is the only one in northern Evros and serves not only the residents of the surrounding area, but it is the hospital that cares primarily for the military personnel serving in the Greek borders
In other towns and large villages of Evros operate health centers and regional clinics, such as the health center of Orestiada, the health center in Soufli and, also the health center of Samothrace.
