According to Bloomberg’s 2019 Indexes, Italy is recognized as the 2nd healthiest country in the world, having the 4th most efficient healthcare system globally. The country’s efficient national healthcare system, strong focus on healthy eating habits, combined with prevention, promote and ensure longevity for its citizens. Besides being a front-runner in the European healthcare arena, Italy offers excellent hospitality standards and a multitude of tourist attractions.
Gruppo San Donato’s model puts the patient's well-being at the centre of attention. A person’s cultural heritage, sentiments and experiences make up a complex entity that we consider as a whole. Hence, the unique model Gruppo San Donato applies to its private university, the Vita-Salute San Raffaele, which integrates the Faculties of Medicine, Philosophy and Psychology in order to give future physicians a global vision of the individual.
The San Donato Hospital Group model is defined by the interaction between clinical activity, higher education and scientific research aimed at putting the patient’s well-being at the center of our attention, and ensuring the longevity of our leading position in the healthcare sector at home and abroad.
The history of Gruppo Ospedaliero San Donato is tied to the history of Luigi Rotelli, physician and founder of the first hospital from which the development of the Group, spanning half a century, began.
