The tragedy that befell on the people of Turkey and Syria has sparked pain and emotion around the world, and we, as the leading operator of private health care in a large country like Italy, have felt the duty to intervene by delivering our contribution.
We realize that the state of emergency cannot be made by anyone alone, and for this, we need to contribute to the largest possible number of public and private entities.
The ways in which collaboration with the government develops confirm that public and private partnership is the most effective way to achieve the goals of the public interest. This is why our point of view is the one of a large group in the service of a large country.
