Pananeio Municipal Hospital: from the initial shine to the ruins, a historical vignette

371 views

At the end of the era of Ottoman rule on the island of Crete, the growing urban population of the city of Heraklion needed a new health care facility. After the efforts of the Christian community and a large donation by the couple Pananos and Athena Theodoulaki, a hospital was built, which soon took the name Pananeio Municipal Hospital of Heraklion. For a period of 70 years, it was the place of treatment of the inhabitants of the city. This hospital echoed the concern of the Cretan State for the local residents. Today, time has left its mark and Pananeio awaits its future in ruins.
Keywords: Pananos Theodoulakis, State of Crete (Romanized: Kritiki Politeia), Municipality of Heraklion.
