Donations to Hospitals
Wolters Kluwer in Italy is making a financial donation to the Luigi Sacco hospital in Milan, a facility at the forefront of the fight against the coronavirus emergency. With this initiative, the company is supporting healthcare professionals who are working tirelessly and exceptionally to deal with the current crisis. The donation will be used for the purchase of equipment, goods and services for the intensive care unit, as well as for the activities of the hospital’s research laboratories.
Additionally, Wolters Kluwer in Italy, through its CCH Tagetik business in Lucca, has funded the addition of eight intensive care unit (ICU) beds for the hospitals of Lucca San Luca and Lucca Castelnuovo Garfagnana. The donation of the ICU beds was based on the requests for specific and prioritized needs guided by the Lucca health management of the USL Tuscany North West Company.
