The hospital is located for some time in a general condition of saturation, which led the administration to approve a redevelopment plan and building functional and hold a competition in 2007 that lead to the construction in the locality Trucca, a new hospital of national importance and high degree of specialization, which will accommodate 1,600 beds. The task assigned to the project team, consisting of architects Benvenuto Bonacina, Mangiarotti Anna and Guido Nardi, fits within this program of measures in order to decongest the operating unit of Cardiac Surgery, since it is heavily loaded on logistics plan both at the operational level, as well as the need to maintain the high standard of the Cardiovascular Department, known and relevant to the national level.
