Who we are
Centro Cardiologico Monzino was founded in 1981 and it is the first hospital in Europe dedicated exclusively to the research, treatment and prevention of cardiovascular disease.
Thanks to its commitment on cardiovascular health, Monzino is able to perform per year more than 6,000 surgeries, 80,000 specialist examinations and 98,000 major diagnostic tests, with a high level of success and reliability.
Research activities are fully integrated with clinical departments, to translate as quickly as possible scientific results into new approaches for prevention, diagnosis, and patient care.
All the activities are inspired by values such as specialization, research, interdisciplinary care and continuity of services, aimed at keeping attention to the person at the center.
The Institute is equipped with the only specialized Emergency Room in Italy exclusively dedicated to cardiovascular emergencies.
Monzino is also a teaching hospital that hosts the School of Medicine, the Schools of Specialization in Cardiology and Heart Surgery, and the degree course in Cardiocirculatory Pathophysiology of the University of Milan. Clinical, research, and educational activities are integrated into a multidisciplinary approach with the mission “Research for Care”.
