Polyclinic Hospital Gemelli

Gemelli Polyclinic is one of the largest hospitals in Rome. Its name comes from the founder of the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart, Father Agostino Gemelli. The hospital was built on the slopes of Monte Mario and inaugurated in 1964. The Polyclinic, being a university, it is not dedicated exclusively to hospital, but his activities range from training of health personnel, the medical and scientific research, the teaching of medicine and nursing disciplines. In 2004 it was also inaugurated a new multi-purpose complex that includes among other things the Center of Aging Diseases and Clinical Infectious Diseases. The Gemelli is also well known for being the Pope’s hospital. Sapore di Casa is very near the Gemelli Hospital, thus becoming a good base for people assisting a relative in need of medical attention
