The donation will contribute towards reinforcing equipment on intensive care wards.
“Our Country is going through a dramatic time, without a doubt nothing like this has ever been experienced in the past few decades. – Declared Maurizio Cimbali, President of the Group. – As an Italian company, strongly rooted in Lombardy, we feel compelled by a need, a duty and a moral commitment to support the healthcare and hospital system which is coping remarkably in the face of this emergency, with a donation of 200 thousand euros for the purchase of lung respirators for intensive care“.
Right from the very start of the emergency, in addition to immediately implementing all measures necessary for protecting the safety of all staff and workers, Cimbali Group also activated extraordinary insurance coverage, which in the event of Covid-19, guarantees both economic and post-recovery assistance.
