We had several reasons to celebrate in Yerevan in July 2012

One was the 20-year anniversary of the ENT department at the Erebouni Medical Centre.

Local personalities from politics (amongst others the previous and the current Minister of Health) and economics delivered speeches and gave interviews for the media. Specifically welcome and acclaimed was Prof. Eghia Noel Garabedian, director of the ENT department at the Armand-Trousseau Hospital in Paris. It was him, who recognized the necessity to establish an ENT department at the Erebouni Medical Centre in 1991, who during one year encouraged his Armenian countrymen, mainly painters and Armenian medical doctors, to make donations and thus – with 2 Million Franc – made the official opening possible in the year 1992. As a result young ENT doctors could spend time for training in his clinic and achieve a high level of professional competence. 10 years later Prof. Garabedian returned to Yerevan and delivered a large part of his speech in Armenian. The audience thanked him with thunderous applause. read more –>
