First the outpatient clinics on the ground floor, then the Cardiology department, the Cardiac ICU department and finally the Child Neuropsychiatry department. Here are the interventions that characterized Specchio dei tempi’ s commitment to Regina Margherita, the children’s hospital in Turin and Piedmont, an excellence recognized throughout the world. The foundation has allocated a total of over 5 million euros to renovate even the most delicate departments, where expensive cutting-edge technologies are indispensable, such as post-operative resuscitation beds.
All the new works were carried out in record time, always thinking also of the psychological impact the hospital has on the little patients with specific furnishings and particular decorations on the walls. The objective of Specchio is not only the renewed functionality of the premises, but also the reception of very young patients and their families.
Much of this work was made possible thanks to a donor who entrusted us with her inheritance and her dream: to continue helping the most unfortunate children and offering them hope. Children like Giacomino, the three-year-old boy who spent more than half of his life in our Cardiology ward and in the summer of 2019 was reborn thanks to a heart transplant: an extraordinary miracle that repays all the effort of our doctors and the generosity of our supporters.
And that’s not all. We also recently gave a set of drills to orthopaedic doctors, while we donated a new holmium ultrasound system to the Pediatric Urology department. Our foundation operates a continuous activity that substitutes, to some extent, some of the “flaws” of the Italian public health system, always thinking only of the good of children.
