IRCCS Ca' Granda Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico

Foundation IRCCS Ca' Granda Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico, known simply as Policlinico of Milan, is a general hospital that can count on important excellence in different areas of care with a strong interdisciplinary focus.

Founded by Duke Francesco Sforza more than 500 years ago, it is among the oldest hospitals in Italy. In its six centuries of activity it has accompanied the Milanese in their course of treatment, making medical history and anticipating various innovations always in step with the times.

The Policlinico has benefited by some great names in science such as Carlo Forlanini (inventor of the artificial pneumothorax), Edoardo Porro (innovator in Cesarian section operation procedure), Baldo Rossi (founding father of emergency surgery and Ernest Hemingway’s surgeon), Luigi Mangiagalli (founder of the obstetrics gynaecology clinic named after him and founding father of many innovations in the field of gynaecology), Carlo Lorenzo Cazzullo (innovator and master of Italian psychiatry) and many others.
