Presentation of the Monaco Cardio-Thoracic Centre
The Monaco Cardio-Thoracic Centre (CCM) is a hospital specialising in cardiovascular and thoracic diseases. It is presented below.
After plans were devised in 1978, the Monaco Cardio-Thoracic Centre opened in April 1987. The CCM enjoyed the support of the Monaco authorities, which backed its intention to address the shortage of beds for cardiology in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region and also to offer a first-class facility to patients from the entire Mediterranean basin. This small hospital specialising in cardiovascular and thoracic diseases (congenital and acquired) is headed up by Guy Nervo and Professor Vincent Dor.
Distinctive medical features
The Cardio-Thoracic Centre has several special features. Firstly, it enables diagnosis and treatment to be carried out in the same place. Internationally renowned medical and surgical teams work together and patients are looked after in a pleasant setting. Everything about the place helps boost their well-being, including the elegance of the building, the proximity to the sea and the closeness of Monaco train station and Nice-Côte d’Azur international airport. Furthermore, thanks to the Centre manageable size, every patient is guaranteed personalised monitoring and high-quality hospitality.
A hospital at the cutting edge of innovation
From its beginning the CCM has put its trust in the most advanced techniques. Accordingly, the Centre installed an angioplasty theatre back in 1990. Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging was introduced in 2002. Lastly, in 2010, the Centre signed a partnership agreement with Siemens, making the Monaco Cardio-Thoracic Centre the “Siemens European Reference Centre”. It now has the most modern medical imaging equipment.
