VitalAire Hellas, a subsidiary of the Air Liquide Hellas Group that specialises in home healthcare for patients suffering from chronic diseases, has recently inaugurated its new shop in Athens.
The new shop opened earlier this month and will provide customised and exclusive services to patients that require sleep apnea treatment and oxygen therapy.
Located in a key area, 200 metres from the Katehaki Metro Station, where most of the biggest hospitals in Athens can be found, the VitalAire store is very easily accessed and offers specific solutions for each individual need – providing last generation products with quality, safety, and efficacy.
Elena Bikou, Healthcare Director of the Air Liquide Hellas Group and Director of VitalAire Hellas, declared, “Home Healthcare allows the patient to follow a more efficient treatment in the friendlier environment of his/her house. The patient and his family will make the necessary arrangements for the purchase of the equipment, as well as the necessary procedures with the social security agencies.”
Home healthcare in Greece
Home healthcare activity was introduced in Greece by Air Liquide Hellas during the 1980s, replacing big and heavy oxygen cylinders with lighter fixed and portable oxygen concentrators and liquid oxygen tanks for use at home and outdoors.
VitalAire Hellas was established in 2003 and since then has gone on to provide patients with gaseous and liquid oxygen equipment, sleep apnea devices, nebulisers and a number of specialised home healthcare services.
As it continues to make greater strides in the manufacture of specialised helium equipment, Cryo Diffusion recently demonstrated this progress with the supply of a 4000 litre liquid helium tank mounted on a standard 20 ft ISO skid to SOL HELLAS.
Air Liquide continues the development of its home healthcare activity with the acquisition in Australia of a 73.3% share of Healthy Sleep Solutions. This company is a leading player in the field of diagnosis and treatment for patients with sleep disorders, notably sleep apnea.
