Our expert team of medical, nursing and other clinical staff is committed to provide the best care and personal attention.
The beginning on Stasicratous Street
In 1982, ‘Papageorgiou & Papapetrou Clinic’ started providing both outpatient and inpatient services. Based on Stasicratous Street in Nicosia, Dr Papageorgiou and Dr Papapetrou provided specialist Obstetrics and Gynaecology services, supported by Dr Boika Papageorgiou, specialist anaesthetist and paediatrician, and Dr Uta Papapetrou, specialist general practitioner.
By focusing on providing excellent service and building a relationship of trust with patients, the workload increased rapidly and the partnership proved to be a success within 2-3 years. As a result, the building on Stasicratous Street proved inadequate to fulfil the clinic’s workload.
Moving to Penelopis Delta Street
So, in 1987 the partnership moved to its own new, purpose-built facility located in the Hilton Hotel area on 9 Penelopis Delta Street. The new clinic was a two-storey building housing 18 beds, two operating theatres, two delivery rooms, a physiotherapy area, four examination rooms and waiting areas. It was around the same time that the decision was made to form the In Vitro Fertilisation Department, after first securing the cooperation of Charalambos Sergiou, a specialist embryologist working in the In Vitro Fertilisation Department of King’s College London.
Expanding to create the country’s largest maternity clinic
After continued success, the clinic expanded by two floors in 1990, increasing its bed capacity from 18 to 34, adding another operating theatre and increasing the number of examination rooms. In addition, five luxury suites were introduced on the top floor. The suites include a small living area, very comfortable patient room, kitchen and veranda.
Continuing to grow
Five more high calibre Obstetrics and Gynaecology specialists – Dr Eleni Pipi, Dr Loukas Varnavides, Dr Afroditi Elisseou, Dr Avraam Pantehis and Dr Giorgos Anastasiou – joined the team, strengthening our medical presence and adding to the Medical Centre’s success.
In 2000 the clinic was re-branded to Mother and Child Medical Centre. The clinic also owns three plots of land, attached to the side and back of the clinic, acquired for further development. Plans for expansion are in the process of being developed.
