Like the saying goes “the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”. In 2008, the founder of SofMedica Group, Georgios Sofianos, took that very step. His vision was to cultivate an open-source ecosystem for healthcare professionals, one that would democratize advanced technology in the Healthcare field by making it accessible and affordable to all.
In 2009 a joint effort with the City, University of London, SofMedica Group transformed the primary renal transfusion healthcare sector of Romania, elevating the quality of everyday routine practice of 600 professionals from various disciplines working in haemodialysis centers. Over 150,000 patients in all Romanian regions benefited from these dedicated efforts.
The shade of Mr. Sofianos’ visionary tree extended far and wide, reaching Romanian society, healthcare professionals, patients, and their families. This inspiration, in 2018, led to the birth of our first-of-its-kind Innovation, Simulation, Learning, Ecosystem (ISLE) Center, not only in Romania but also in Greece, with a third mobile facility serving our broader regions.
Throughout 2019-2020, our team, across all regions, has remained dedicated to opening our doors to meet your needs, hosting workshops, courses, and demos that have been in increasingly high demand. Along this journey, numerous institutions, associations, and partners have found a welcoming home within ISLE ACADEMY’s facilities.
Since the beginning of 2022, ISLE ACADEMY is an independent entity of the Group with dedicated resources and management demonstrating the leadership’s commitment to taking education of Healthcare Professionals at the highest level.
