Hospital Aegina
Agios Dionisios - Saint Dionisios

The hospital in Aegina town is a private philanthropic hospital run by the church and administered by a 7 - member council of unpaid volunteers. It has been in operation since 1921 and is supervised by the mitropolitis of the administrative district in which it is found by the present mitropolitis, Mr. Ephraim. Agios Dionisios can be found on a 10 minute walking distance from the port of Aegina town.

There is one doctor (of internal medicine) who is available at the hospital from 9:00-14:00 and from 18:00-22:00 daily.
