Inaugurated on July 10, 1964, in a context of excellence where a highly prestigious academic quality, innovative research and care and assistance coexist in favor of patients. For over 50 years it has been an integral part of the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore and from August 1, 2015 the Policlinico Universitario A. Gemelli has obtained the legal status of Fondazione. Such development, which is in full continuity with the Gemelli’s history, has ensured the autonomy necessary to manage its increasing complexity and face the challenges set by a health scenario in profound development.

The closely integrated relationship with the Medicine and Surgery School of the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore remains intact, a fundamental characteristic in order to continue and guarantee the high quality of the medical service, the continuous research for treatment innovation and the essential nature of the Policlinico Universitario. The institutional work done by the Fondazione, a private non-profit organization formed by Istituto Toniolo and Università Cattolica, is the protection and promotion of human beings in a medical care environment, training, scientific research and of innovation in the biomedical and health, including both medical and translational, fields.

The Gemelli proves to be the place where scientific and technical skills, human sensitivity, Catholic ethics and values become a genuine commitment for excellent and affordable treatments available to the entire community. The value that is placed daily at the heart of the work done, since its beginning, is people’s integrity, their treatment needs, those expressed as well as unexpressed, providing an environment for relationships of humanity with patients and for all of their struggles and weaknesses.

In 2018, further confirmation of the the value and continuous improvement of the treatments offered was received with the legislation from the Ministry of Health, who acknowledged the scientific nature of the Policlinico Gemelli through the fields of “Personalized Medicine” and “Innovative Biotechnologies”, becoming an Istituto di Ricovero e Cura a Carattere Scientifico (IRCCS) – Institution for Hospitalization and Treatment of Scientific Nature.
