The Institute



The San Carlo di Nancy Hospital, a first-aid facility accredited by the Italian National Health Service, was acquired by GVM Care & Research in May 2015 and underwent a restructuring and reorganization process. Founded in 1932, the San Carlo of Nancy Hospital is located on the Via Aurelia, not far from the Vatican City. The facility, classified as a general local hospital since September 1976, can treat about 15,000 patients a year under ordinary hospitalization. To date, the facility has about 450 professionals, including the medical and paramedical staff. The Group has invested heavily in technological innovation to support its healthcare services, conforming to the highest standards required by law. For example the DaVinci Xi robotic system has been recently acquired.
