May 2017 marks the first day of the new Amethyst centre in Rome. The grow of the Amethyst network has now reached the Italian Peninsula.
Located in the picturesque Isola Tiberina, an island located inside the Tiber river, the centre stems from a partnership between Amethyst and Fatebenefratelli order, which has run the San Giovanni Calibita Hospital since 1585. The centre is located inside the hospital building. It develops around the ruins of the temple of the ancient roman god of medicine, Aesculapius.
The island has served since the III century BCE as the healthcare centre of Rome. The new investments planned by Amethyst on the site aim at creating a quality-focused, high-technology radiotherapy centre by revamping and completely renovate the existing department.
The centre is equipped with two last generation Varian Linacs complete of all accessories. A shuttle service is also available for all people who have difficulties reaching the Island.
