Didier Gamerdinger, Minister of Health and Social Affairs, visited Monaco’s Cardio-Thoracic Center on Monday, October 2, where he was welcomed by Deputy Chairman Prof Vincent Dor, and Dr Jean-Joseph Pastor and Guy Nervo, Managing Directors of the Center.

Thirty-one years after opening, the Cardio-Thoracic Center, thanks to the know-how of its medical-surgical teams and the exceptional means at its disposal, is a model of excellence in cardio-thoracic medicine.

The private centre dedicated to cardiac medicine is completely autonomous and welcomes a number doctors from abroad to operate or train.

The Cardio-Thoracic Center of Monaco has treated 65,000 patients and carried out 20,000 open heart interventions since April 1987. Over the years, nearly 2,250 children with heart malformations have been operated on.

Today, the hospital has 51 hospital beds, 15 intensive care beds with one nurse dedicated to each patient and seven day visit beds.

At the end of the visit, Didier Gamerdinger said: “The Cardio-Thoracic Center of Monaco is a leading establishment in its field of expertise. It is a credit to Monaco.”
