Villa Maria Cecilia
Free shuttle service.
The inauguration of the structure took place on 21 October 1973 in Cotignola, in the province of Ravenna, with the construction of a 180-bed hospital. From the very first moment, Villa Maria distinguishes itself from other private Emilia-Romagna facilities for a precise choice: orienting the activity towards High Specialty and High Complexity, in particular towards clinical cardiology, interventional and endovascular diagnostics and towards cardiac surgery, making the Villa Maria di Cotignola nursing home the first private cardiac surgery center in Italy. Precisely for this reason, the attractiveness of the structure prompted illustrious Italian and foreign cardiac surgeons to collaborate with the structure, increasing its fame throughout the country.
Today, after more than forty years, Villa Maria has been transformed into the current Maria Cecilia Hospital, a state-of-the-art hospital that has 200 beds for diagnosis and treatment hospitalizations and which offers services in ordinary hospitalization, day hospital and day surgery, a structure that has been able to develop historical sectors such as cardiology, diagnostic and interventional cardio-angiology, cardiac surgery and the treatment and prevention of diabetic foot.
