Six transplants were performed last night at ISMETT, Istituto Mediterraneo per i Trapianti e Terapie ad Alta Specializzazione, in Palermo. The recipients are all Sicilian; 17 doctors, 30 health care operators (nurses, technicians and other clinical staff) and 4 operating rooms were involved for more than 24 hours, a real tour de force.
ISMETT boosted the Sicilian economy by €132.5 million in expenditure in 2013, generated 1,793 jobs and provided a net benefit of more than €73 million by retaining patients who otherwise would have traveled outside of Sicily for care, according to a new study by the Battelle Memorial Institute. At the same time, the partnership with UPMC provided access to research, training and advanced health care management.
