According to our research expert, the involvement of the various specialties of our hospital in research activity reflects the high curricular value of its health professionals.  In his opinion, 2022 will see a continued growth in this area, thanks to the commitment of the specialists who are already involved in this activity and the recent incorporation of new health professionals with outstanding medical and research profiles.
