Gennimatas", "Hippocration",  "K.A.T.", "P. and A. Kyriakou", "Laiko", "Sismanoglio ", “Sotiria” and "A. Syggros".

Two of these hospitals, Aretaion“ and “Aiginiteio, are self-governed, bequested to the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. They are administered by independent Executive Boards according to their bylaws and are supervised by the Rector and the Senate of the NKUA.
