On the second floor there are 14 specialised clinics that open daily from 7am until 9pm. While the third floor hosts the main hospital department, which includes a modern operating theatre with two operation rooms, a post-operative monitoring unit (POMU) and comfortable private patient rooms for recovery and treatment purposes.
