9. Private Health Institutions

The category "Private Health Institutions" includes Private Health Institutions active in the health sector such as private hospitals, clinics, diagnostic centers, research centers etc. When compared to the rest Institution Categories –presented in the previous chapters–, this Category  made the least contribution to the total number of Greek publications. However, the category displays the highest citation impact indicator values. 

This chapter includes analytical data for the key players in this Category. More specifically, these are: St. Luke's Hospital, the Alfa Institute of Biomedical Sciences, the Henry Dunant hospital, the Ηellenic Cooperative Oncology Group, the IASO Group, the HYGEIA Group (which includes Hygeia General Hospital, MITERA and LETO Maternity Hospitals).

The table below presents the number of publications produced by the institutions and citations that their publications received for the period 2006-2010 and compares them to relevant data obtained for the period 2004-2008 (data emerged from EKT’s previous study).
