Le attività di internalizzazione dell’AOU San Giovanni di Dio e Ruggi d’Aragona: il lancio di Beyond Silos durante l’Open Days della Commissione Europea

Il ruolo dell’Ospedale nella erogazione delle cure sanitarie negli ultimi anni è cambiato per poter rispondere in maniera adeguata alle necessità della popolazione che invecchia sempre di più.
