Mission and values


A very important aspect of everyday work is to instill confidence and safety in people who have a cardiovascular problem.
Monzino is a hospital tailored to the person, which guarantees a relationship "one by one" with the doctor who follows the patient in his path of care with the support of an experienced nursing team.

A distinctive and characterizing philosophy, that is due to the intuition of the founders and consolidated in an increasingly structured system of clinical policies and practices, allows to transfer in daily practice the values that inspire the activity: the high specialization, research, interdisciplinarity and continuity of service aimed at keeping the focus on the person.

The results of the research are transferred to the patient in the shortest possible time and one of the most important challenges is to ensure that the intervention time becomes shorter and the therapies become more tolerable.
At Monzino, a person with cardiovascular problems finds a human and welcoming environment and a team capable of accurately identifying the best cure for him or her.
