Gruppo Ospedaliero San Donato Foundation

Cardiovascular diseases are the number one cause of death in Western countries, causing about 17 million deaths per year (40% of total deaths) and exceeding by far the mortality due to tumors.*

Since 1957 Gruppo Ospedaliero San Donato has been developing a first-class center for cardiovascular diseases treatment and research, which today has become the most important center in Italy and one of the most well-known in Europe, thanks to the constant development of diagnostic, surgical and therapeutic techniques. We will keep on supporting prevention and research to improve cures for all patients.


Reduce the number of deaths and incidents due to cardiovascular diseases.

Make people live longer and healthier.
