HOSPITAL OF SAPRI

HOSPITAL OF SAPRI

The history of the Hospital of Sapri begins on July 28, 1979 when Don Giovannino iantorno, then parish priest of the city, the fighting committee and the CGIL, organized with the population of the Policastro Gulf a big event wich made the creation of the hospital possible. A long battle won after the exhausting and endless expectations in the previous 30 years. In the 80s a long battle by some trade unionists who even through the hunger strike, were able to make further progress and to ask for the intervention of the President of the Republic. This battle led to the recruitment of the temporary staff who worked at the Hospital of Sapri. Then people fought for the opening of two departments absolutely essential to save the lives of so many citizens users of the Hospital: anesthesia department and intensive care. Then, in 2009, many mayors from the Gulf of Policastro, many politicians and many common people took action in order to avoid that the hospital could be reduced. The battle allowed the hospital to be one of the most impotant ones in the area.
