“Today is a non-trivial moment, bringing us back to a much-needed normalcy, which I am pleased to share with representatives of the regional authorities.“.
like him Elise Azzan, Director General of Santa Croce e Carle Hospital in Cuneo, who opened this afternoon (Friday, April 8) the new intensive care unit and integrated endoscopic panel of the Cuneo ASO. The opening has been postponed for several months due to the pandemic, which thus represents the true ‘shift’ of local healthcare to a period closer to the normal pre-Covid period.
The Vice President of the Regional Council also attended Franco GragliaSenator Mino Tarico, Honorable Monica Chaporro, Regional Adviser Ivano Martinetti, Counselor Cuneo Cristina Clerico, Carabinieri Regional Commander Giuseppe Carrupia, President of the Santa Croce and Carly Foundation Silvia MerlowGiuseppe Guerra, Corrado Pidogne and Monica Repora.
“I thank all attendees, all department and structure managers, department staff coordinators and all employees, the living assets of the company that have spent the period of the pandemic without sparing themselves, also putting their personal health at risk.Azzan added.A commitment that we hope will change the situation, but that will continue; The epidemic is not over but the company’s activities must accelerate, and technological development must also continue: a center like ours must continue to contain advanced elements“.
The intensive care unit, reinforced with 15 “Arcuri Floor” beds, is located on the first floor of the hospital, close to the operating building. It has high technical and factory characteristics and has a cost of about 1,570 euros per square meter, plus 700,000 euros for equipment. The new integrated endoscopic panel – measuring 650 square meters and costing €690,000 – aims instead to unify the hospital’s endoscopic activities into one area.
“Congratulations to all of you on this achievement that brings innovation and makes Kunio the most Hospital of Excellence – said Merlo – . Had he been present, consultant Luigi Icardi would have asked where we are in relation to the design of the new hospital. There will be another occasion“.
“I am happy and I want to say thank you to this hospital that has been my home for seven long months – said Graglia, visibly moved, and concluded the speeches – . Professors and doctors literally saved me and the fact that the quality of service has increased and is still increasing can only make me happy; The Regional Council, as it is sometimes referred to, is not “nature-centric” and I personally am “centric”. The message going through at an inauguration like today is the desire to move forward towards new challenges, facing obstacles together.“.
Then the attendees continued cutting the tapes and visiting the section and the plate. These two openings will be followed, in the coming months, by further appointments, renovations and further activations.
