IEO: European Institute of Oncology and Centro Cardiologico Monzino will partecipate at Intercare as Gold Sponsor.
Established in 1994 from an idea of Umberto Veronesi, the European Institute for Oncology (IEO) is a non-profit Comprehensive Cancer Centre in which the clinical activity, research and education are closely linked. The IEO promotes a new type of approach to patient care, offering personalized patient-centered care that respects the patients’ quality of life while offering them the best clinical treatment available. The mission of IEO is to be continuously involved in innovation in the fight against cancer and to strive for excellence in cancer prevention, early diagnosis and effective treatment through clinical and scientific research. Organizational and management innovation results in a constant focus on the quality of the services provided to patients. In just over twenty years of activity the IEO has contributed to a better understanding of various tumors and has lead to new protocols and treatment regimens which have become standard practice both nationally and internationally. The Institute has always promoted a patient-centered approach that respects the patients’ quality of life specifically reflecting the IEO philosophy while continuously revolutionizing clinical oncological practice thanks to its innovative research. The IEO approach allows its’ physicians to provide patients the best treatment possible thanks also to up-to-date mini-invasive methods. Most of the Institute’s clinical programs make wide use of Robotic Surgery, reducing the risks associated with conventional surgery and offering numerous potential benefits to the patients. Moving from the maximum tolerable treatment to the most effective minimum one is the common goal of all the clinical programs in IEO from Breast Cancer Surgery, to Lung cancer diagnosis and treatment (thanks to the innovative low dose CT scan), to Radiotherapy techniques and also Interventional Radiology. Continuously improving the quality of research, assistance and care is one of the chief aims of the Institute’s mission. IEO runs according to the best international clinical practices while observing the IEO philosophy: the patient is first and foremost an individual.
Centro Cardiologico Monzino was founded in 1981 by Italo Monzino and Professor Cesare Bartorelli of the University of Milan, and is the first Scientific Institute for Research and Treatment in Europe focused exclusively on cardiovascular disease, only for adult patients.
In 1992 Cardiologico Monzino became a Scientific Institute for Research and Treatment(I.R.C.C.S.) and since 2000 is part of the IEO Group. The hospital has 219 accredited beds (24 of which in Intensive Care Units), 9 interventional rooms (1 multifunctional), an Imaging Department with 2-3D eco, CT and MRI, and the Cardiovascular Telemedicine. More than 700 people with different skills work together every day.
Centro Cardiologico Monzino is included in the emergency system of the Lombardy province and ensures the service for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, including the treatment of acute myocardial infarction, primary angiography and stenting, for more than 11.300 patients. In 2016 were performed almost 1.500 surgical interventions, 6.900 electrophysiology and haemodynamic procedures, 72.000 medical examinations and 46
