Created in October 2016 from the over 50 years of experience of the Fondazione Salvatore Maugeri, the vanguard of Occupational Medicine and Rehabilitation in Italy, the ICS Maugeri Spa Benefit Corporation is the leading group in rehabilitation medicine and related care, with 18 institutes in six regions (Piedmont, Lombardy, Liguria, Campania, Puglia and Sicily) employing 3,600 people, including more than 650 doctors, and offering more than 2,400 beds accredited by the Italian National Health Service (SSN).
Over the years, the Maugeri has been specialising in the care of chronic patients and their disabilities in order to guarantee them a good quality of life. In particular, the clinical care model has been responding in an ever more personalised way to the needs of the so-called “comorbid” or “pluripathological ” patient, providing rehabilitation for the main disease but, at the same time, treating the other diseases from which the individual suffers.
This is the reason why Oncology, Palliative Care, Pain Medicine and other specialty sectors of Internal Medicine have been developing, for over 30 years, within the Institute of Pavia, alongside the traditional areas of rehabilitation: Neurorehabilitation, Cardiology and Respiratory Medicine.
Pavia is also the site of an expanding Breast Care service, with the birth of the first city Breast Unit certified by the European Society of Breast Cancer Specialists (EUSOMA).
The qualification of Clinical and Scientific Research Centre (IRCCS) granted to ten of the institutions – Pavia, Pavia-Via Boezio, Lumezzane (BS), Castel Goffredo (MN), Milan, Montescano (PV), Lissone (MB), Tradate (VA), Telese (BN), Cassano (BA) – ensures continuous osmosis between clinical and research activities, together with well-established scientific and educational collaboration with many Italian and foreign universities.
