Possible medical tourism clinic

 

A Paphos businessman has set his sights on making his hometown a destination for medical tourism with plans to construct a diagnostic, treatment and rehabilitation centre in the Oreites community of Souskiou.

Apostolos Fotiou’s planned clinic could have two floors of facilities including 60 beds for patients, on-site staff accommodation, a physiotherapy centre and gym, offices, car park and a pharmacy.

Critics claim that the centre could have a negative and irreversible impact on the environment, mainly due to the size of the project and the need for new roads, electricity, water, and other supplies will require.

The site is also near a wind park over which the European Commission has expressed concerns that the wind park may have violated environmental provisions.

Local attempts to promote medical tourism have often failed due to authorities being slow to act and failure to obtain EC funding.
