ABS Acciaierie and Danieli Group’s commitment to the well-being of the community

Promoting the well-being of citizens goes hand in hand with caring for the community. ABS Acciaierie and Danieli Group are demonstrating this principle through their initiative, which will facilitate the renovation of the operating rooms at “Santa Maria della Misericordia” Hospital in Udine. This intervention falls under the “Extraordinary Maintenance of Spaces in the Basement” project and will involve the refurbishment of the operating rooms in Section Five, including the installation of an angiography unit. The chosen equipment, a Siemens Artis Zee system, will be housed in the new hemodynamics room and will be used for electrophysiology procedures, hemodynamics, and transcatheter heart valve implants. The addition of this equipment expands and reinforces the hospital’s angiography resources for Interventional Cardiology, increasing the number of units from two to three. With the donation from ABS Acciaierie and Danieli Group, there will be an increase in available resources for both emergency situations and maintenance periods of the equipment. This collaboration underscores the commitment of the Group to the well-being of the community and the enhancement of healthcare services in Friuli-Venezia Giulia.
