INTESA SANPAOLO LAUNCHES A NATIONAL HOSPITALITY PROJECT FOR FAMILIES OF YOUNG CANCER PATIENTS
Free accommodation facilities for families in six children’s oncohematology wards, where the Group has set up and sponsors nurseries: Turin, Monza, Naples, Padua, Bologna and Genoa
Milan, 18 December 2020 – Intesa Sanpaolo has launched the project “Una casa per la mia famiglia” (A home for my family), offering free accommodation facilities to help families with children on the oncohematology wards of six hospitals in Turin (Ospedale Regina Margherita), Monza (Ospedale San Gerardo), Naples (Ospedale Santobono Pausilipon), Padua (Azienda Ospedale Università), Bologna (Policlinico Sant’Orsola Malpighi) and Genoa (Istituto Giannina Gaslini).
The project provides around 640 beds for young patients and their family members, thus reinforcing the accommodation capacity of the non-profit organisations at the relevant hospitals: UGI of Turin, Comitato Maria Letizia Verga of Monza, Fondazione Santobono Pausilipon of Naples, Sezione AIL of Padua, AGEOP of Bologna and Fondazione Gerolamo Gaslini of Genoa.
The initiative has been set up as part of the Intesa Sanpaolo Group’s special programme for long-term children patients, launched in 2016, which offers free nurseries for children receiving treatment in the oncohematology wards of six Italian hospitals. The educational service offered to young patients is now joined by support to families obliged to commute to the hospital.
In Genoa, in particular, the project is enhanced further with “WE-Connected!”, set up jointly by Intesa Sanpaolo, Intesa Sanpaolo Vita and Fondazione Gerolamo Gaslini, to equip 32 hospitality residences for patients at the hospital of Genoa with computers and Internet connection, thus making it easier to pursue distance learning and socialisation.
